    I have an original 1947 Whizzer H model with the tillotson carb. I rebuilt it a couple years ago and it has always run great.
    Resently I rented it as set decoration on a movie set and when I got it back and started it, gas spewed out the drive side from what looks like the spot where the air filter mounts to the carb. I cant figure it out! The bike will run while shooting gas out 2' from the bike!
    Please Help

    The float in your carb is probably stuck. Change your oil because when the gas runs out it also gets down inside your crankcase & mixes with your oil..

    Thanks for the tip on the oil change. Is there anything else it could be? I checked the float and it looks mint. I think what ever happened, happened while transporting the bike in a truck but I cant see any visible damage. I'm perplexed

    Did the leak stop?

    Did you take out the float needle & blow it all out with an air hose?
