I just finished restoring my 661 and I have a new shut off valve under gas tank and gas keeps leaking out of carb. Even if the shut off leaks why would gas keep coming out of the carb? I hope to post some pictures soon.

Gas keeps coming out of the carb because your needle valve isn't seating.
Or, the seat does not have a gasket under it or for some other reason is
not making a good seal to the body of the carb.
I agree with old, the new shutoff valves can be junk, but your carb should
still shut the fuel flow off at least in the short term.
I'm assuming the gas is coming out of the carb throat.
If it's leaking from other areas there may be other reasons.
