Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Remove the engine hood, then look at the large round fuel injectors on the cylinder heads. One of the 6 may have the bolts backed out on them and be causing the o-rings to leak. The early Ficht engines had this issue. If you cannot see if on the cylinder heads, look at the VST and make sure hat it is not flooding. If it is, it will need to be removed and cleaned
