where is the fuel coming out? between the bowl flange and carb body or down the throat of the carb?

down the throat of the carb
Marine Mechanic: Jason Forsberg, Marine Mechanic replied 8 years ago
You have a leaking inlet needle and needs to be replaced and the float height checked( should be parallel to carb body when turned upside down.
