Thank you all for your comments and help.
I think that I got the leak thing on the carb figured out. There was no clamp on the inlet hose of the carb. See the attached photo.
But now I am running into another issue. It’s taking about 10 kicks to get it started when the motor is cold. Then when you take it off of choke it doesn’t want to stay idling. If I give it some gas right before it’s about to stall out it will stay running but as it will kinda pop and puff a little bit as the isle goes back down. Think that it’s maybe too lean?
