Thanks for your replies! I tried gently tapping the fuel bowl portion of my carb while breifly running it but still flooding out. If I squeeze the fuel line Bulb I can watch fuel running out my carburettor. Something is lodged in my needle and seat or it needs a new one. I ordered the Carb repair kit from Action Marine in nearby Webster,MA FOR $56.00 and a new float for additional $15.00. Looks like a pain to reach the Carb but I'll find out for sure when it comes in. In the meantime while running with the Water Ears in my driveway I must of blew my Water Pump Impellor. Shut her down right away and now I have that to fix first too.
Thanks Again,
Wayne Lee
