Hi I'm Wayne,
I will help you with this,
if you replaced th needle and seat, the only thing left that would cause this is float level too high, bend the tang up ward on the float where it touches the needle valve,this will cure your problem.


If this helped you, Please hit Accept,if not get back to me. Cool

it is a floating float so it just sits in there
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 8 years ago

Morning rlymviq,

I have never seen a floating float,
How does it touch the needle valve to push to shut off gas. ??
Are you sure it did not break off ??
Let me know

Thanks, WAyne Cool

Hi rlymviq,

OK I just found that cab picture , and parts , I see the that it does free float but it must follow a valve with needle on top of it to shut off fuel

Take a look at this web site with picture

i did everything that it said but i still have fuel coming though i dont know what could be.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 8 years ago
Hi rlymviq,

did you replace the needle and seat because of this problem, or did it happen after the new needle and seat ??

Thanks, WAyne

what happened was i decided to clean the carby when i replaced the coil and rewired the tractor ever since i took it apart i have had this problem the old gasket was i dont think had ever been replaced i only brouht the tractor a few months ago and i wanted to get it up and running good and keep everything serviced and running well.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 8 years ago

Hi rlymviq,
Well then I would say it has something to do with the parts or installed incorrect,
Try putting the old parts back in with the new gaskets and see what happens

Thanks, Wayne
