Fuel in the filter?

    Why is there fresh fuel in my NT carby filter? Do I need to adjust the float? Is this jacking up the mixture? How do I make it stop?

    if it is dripping out, you need to check float and its needle to see that it is clean and the float not leaking fuel into itself

    if the float itself does not have a leak then should I adjust the float height in the bowl?

    if carb is level, this usually isn't needed - to adjust, with the carb upside down look across top of float to see just a bit of main jet peeking up thru the hole - leaner (lower float level) is with main just hidden by float, while richer is with about 1/2 the main sticking up

    before adjusting, be sure that float needle is working to stop fuel flow when closed

    My carb needle was worn ,as to let fuel through, corrected by sanding needle with 300 grit! It worked!
