I have bought a pocket bike. Worked great up until 2 days ago when i noticed gas coming from the carb overflow line. It worked for about an hour after that and know it will not start at all. I can put starting fluid in it and it will start but idle out. I have cleaned the bowl of the carb out and polished the spark plug. The cap of the spark plung doent fit the cap but it didnt seem to be a problem in the past. I have heard to take the carb out and the plastic around the air filter off to see if light goes through but i have no idea how to do it. Do i need to take the back tire off? Is this even the correct thing to do. im not good with the naming of parts but i can post pics of anything needed to find the answer Any help will be apreciated thanks

Try tapping the float with something solid...if that dont stop the flow you may have chunks of petcock rubber seal or o-ring stuck in the needle already............

remove the carb,,,clean it out.,,

set the float a tad leaner,,,only a micro movement..

upgrade the fuel delivery to 1/4"

do the petcock mod...........

After that you should be ok for a bit..............Good luck
