I need some help as I'm scratching my head on this one. I finally rebuilt my engine after 2 years of sitting torn apart. The gas tank and fuel pump were fine for 2 years when I emptied the old fuel and put new fuel in, it started flowing from the fuel pump. No power was connected so it shouldn't have been doing anything and I'm confused because it had fuel in it before and never leaked.
It does not have a petcock. It does have a fuel pump and it isn't supposed to pump (release) any fuel unless there is power to it. The tank sat for 2 years on the floor of my garage w/o leaking a drop. When I replaced the gas to start it after rebuilding the engine is when it started leaking.
People have said that as long as the floats in the carbs are working it shouldn't matter if it leaks the carbs will regulate it... It does bother me a little as to why it's doing it but I priced out a new fuel pump etc and it's over 500 bucks so I'm inclined to let it go.
