Your float is stuck, a quick fix is tapping on the float bowl with a wrench or the handle of a screwdriver, but you need to tear your carb down and give it a good cleaning.

Why does your carburetor leak gas?

I have no idea why your carburetor leaks gas. For starters, I have no idea what type of engine you have. If it is a car, it is an old one since you do not have fuel injection. Maybe you should clean the grease and grime that has built up over the last 20 years off your carburetor and engine. Next, take a wrench, not a pair of pliers, and tighten the connections. They may have come loose. Now start your engine and try to see if you can tell where the gas might be leaking. Take the air filter off your carburetor. If it was not a loose connection and is not a leaking tube that you can replace then you have done all you can do and need to take it to a regular mechanic.

There are several reasons there can be a leak. However, you will want to take the carburetor apart for any leak - purchase the carburetor kit and carefully take it apart. Use the rebuild kit to replace gaskets, etc. and when you put it back together, the leak will also be fixed. Do not use gasket sealer on the carburetor.

Gas leaking out of carburetor in Harley Davidson?

You have to be more precise - where on the carburetor is the gas leaking from? The fuel line on the late model CV carburators enters from the bottom left as you face the carburetor and you could have a leak there, particularly if an aftermarket clamp replaces the original. If its leaking out the front - into the air filter system, then you might want to check the float level and likely replace the float valve. I'll be quite honest with you, with the late model carburators is is less expensive to buy a good used one on E-Bay than it is to repair one in most cases - there are lots of them and they are very inexpensive despite being one of the best CV carburators on the market.

You removed a spark plug from your riding mower and gas came out is this normal?

It is not totally unusual. It should not happen though. It means that your carburetor is leaking gas through while the mower is not running. It will fill the cylinder and get into the oil. A quick fix is to get an inline gas shutoff valve and just shut off the gas when you are not using the mower. Otherwise you will need to rebuild the carburetor to fix the problem. You will also have to clear out all the gas from the cylinder and if it got into the oil you will need to drain and change the oil.
