Thanks for the tip Eric! I can’t be sure of the problem, but after disassembling the top cover to the carb, checking all very closely with the float, needle & seat, reassembling, the leak or flooding due to the needle not seating well in the seat, is gone! Started her up and drove back & fourth in the garage. Runs good, no fuel leaks!
By the looks of the two drive belts, both could be original! Both in questionable condition. New numbers for the belts from Gates are; generator & h2o pump 7430, P/S 7440. Replaced both.
