Hello, my name is***** will assist you today.With the carb spitting fuel back out, you will have either the float sticking and allowing the carb to flooding, or the reeds are broken on that cylinder. You will need to remove that carb, and inspect the reeds behind it. if you see that there s one missing, you will need to open the intake and replace it. If the reeds are good, take the carb down and clean it. Replace the gaskets and the needles. You may wish to do all 3 carbs.
