The needle and seat in the carbs or one of the carbs Float arms are probably bent, kinked to one side or could be defective, your needle and position may be varnished from ethanol fuel and not sealing or other contamination in the carburetor. Try removing and cleaning but don't remove the float pin unless you know what you're doing, im a diesel tech and its easy for me, I've seen other mechanics break them or lose the spring under it. Be gentle if you do and keep the float depressed until the pin is out and then let it up slowly. The carbs, all or one of them don't shut off fuel as they should, and the negative vacuum from the DPM pulls fuel into it, and it leaks too. The purpose of a needle and seat is to shut off fuel when the float rises, its a complex build of a simple function. If you know how to rebuild a carb, then I would recommend pulling the flute and venturi. The pipe and venturi above the needle valve can get green corrosion on it plugging its holes, and it will not even let air through. This is caused by using ethanol fuel and not draining the carbs and tank during the summer. Ethanol fuel has a high water absorption level; non-ethanol fuel does not. This carries moisture to the carb and brass components in it. They tarnish and clog. Ethanol sucks, switch to premium non-ethanol or straight gasoline high octane, use a fuel stabilizer if you don't. seafoam works excellent on cleaning out the engine, don't use too much as it can burn rings over time. We used to use +104 in our sleds, but that was when gas was $1.00 a gallon in high school. Follow the directions and clean it out. During assembly watch to ensure you are putting the float bowl on correctly as I have to see the edge push the side of the float ear up and bend the pin which causes the float not to rise completely and never shut off fuel, there is a video on YouTube for this but I can't seem to find it at the moment because I don't remember what I specifically searched for.

Some tips from our in-house experts
Caring for your Clark's footwear will not only prolong the life of your shoes, but will keep them looking in tip-top condition for longer. Here are a few key steps you can take to look after your favorite leather footwear.
  1. Use a damp cloth to remove soiling then let dry naturally - never on top of a radiator, next to the oven, near the fireplace - just somewhere at room temperature.
  2. Use a colored polish that matches your shoe color to restore any damaged areas, filling in the scuffed away spots .
  3. Use a good leather cream - this acts like a moisturizer for your shoes but with added benefits, again helping to build up a protective barrier.
  4. Use a shoe-protecting product to build up a protective barrier, this way, your shoes will last longer!
To get a really good shine use a damp cloth when polishing leather shoes. Once the cloth starts to 'grip', stop polishing, let the shoe dry naturally, then buff with a dry cloth. Repeat until your achieve the level of shine you want. All shoes will benefit from a shoe-tree, especially leather shoes which have been wet as the tree will help maintain a good shape.
