Hello, this is Charles. Thank you for requesting me.
Does the petrol leak out before you start the engine or after you try and start it?
How long has the motor been siting unused?
Ok, Was he using it at home?
How was the engine transported?
2 or 4 stroke?
Can you tell is the fuel is running from the bottom of the lower pans or from inside the intake runner? You will need to remove the top cowling to do so.
Would it be possible for you to take a pic of the leak and post it here so that I may get a look at it?
