One of the more common questions we get concerns either the overwhelming smell of gas coming from the carburetor or fuel leaking out of the bowl or overflow. Both conditions are typically caused by a stuck or worn float needle valve. Another common cause is the use of fuel containing any Ethanol.
What are the three hoses on a carburetor?
One is the bowl drain, and the other is a overflow drain. And the other is your fuel inlet.

Most carburetors will have a vent tube that acts as a “port” to the fuel bowl; this “port” provides the carburetor with pressure from it’s ambient surroundings and forces the fuel to move through the metering passages as required based on engine demand.

What is a carburetor vacuum line?
A vacuum hose, which can also be referred to as a “line” or a “tube,” is a flexible rubber connection that routes manifold vacuum to various components and accessories. Adapters are available to convert from one ID to another, but it’s typically best to use properly sized vacuum hoses whenever replacing them.
How does a carburetor get vacuum?
A carburetor relies on the vacuum created by the engine to draw air and fuel into the cylinders. The throttle can open and close, allowing either more or less air to enter the engine. This air moves through a narrow opening called a venturi. This creates the vacuum required to keep the engine running.
