    Should the actual inside of the float have a liquid inside it? Say about 1/4 or 1/2 full?

    NO their should not be any liquid inside the float. You must have a small hole in it somewhere

    Bummer, I do have fluid inside the float. I didn't see any bubbles when the float was submerged in the gas. I guess I will have to replace it. Know of any place online I can order one for the NT speed carb? Thanks for the help

    Who sells just the float online for this carb? I'm not going to find this in France for sure.

    Well, I finally received my float for my carb (NT Speed carb), but now I can't get her to start (almost) but then she bogs out. I am getting a spark and fuel is flowing. I did add a rubber o-ring to my gas cap right at the time my float sprung a leak. So after reading some post on here about vapor lock, I was thinking well maybe that is the cause. Not to sure at this point in time. I am thinking that the engine itself is flooded. So whats the best way to get any fuel out of the engine from being flooded? She ran great before the float sprung a leak and now she won't fire up. any other suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
