41 9N 12v tractor. Has brand new points, condenser, plugs, plug wires. Have good spark and I have fuel going thru the carb. it continues thru the carb and onto the ground. I am thinking I need new carb. Any input. Did put repair kit in carb and it still leaks.

If you have gas leaking out of the carb throat and on to the ground, you are either choking it way too much or you have issues with the float or needle.

These engines are easily flooded. Try starting it with out any choke and a little ether.

There are some excellent carb experts here; they will have more detailed explanations on your carb.

FWIW, make sure your float is adjusted properly and not hanging on the sides of the bowl. Make sure it has no holes in it and will actually FLOAT. A float filled with gas cannot perform its job and sinks to the bottom of the bowl.

Your float needle should be "set" during installation if it has the rubber tip. Place it in the seat and lightly tap it to put the set in it. Make sure the gasket under the seat is installed correctly to keep fuel from seeping past the thread.

I have put a kit in one and the float seat would not tighten all the way and compress the gasket. Grabbed another seat, gasket and needle; everything worked perfectly.

Dave, what he said. Had a carb with gas in the floats, wouldn't run worth a darn. Did a complete cleaning and rebuild (but kept old jets) and new float and it has never run better. Mine also was sucking air around the throttle shaft and that didn't help matters, cured with the new shaft and packing from the kit. Good luck with it!

" Did put repair kit in carb and it still leaks. "

Gas is leaking past the needle and seat. You need to make sure the gasket is between the seat and the carb body and the seat really needs to be tight. Also check float for leaks and height.

Where do you live in MO? Hint - I am near Pacific.

Just because you did a kit in the carb does not mean you did not miss something when you did.
Is the float needle seat good and tight, common reason for a leak if not tight enough. Rubber tipped needle if yes it need to have a set put in it to seal at first. As HCooke asked where are you one of us maybe able to help you if close enough to one of us. Me also in Missouri the Lake of the Ozarks area

Try this, remove carb. Put in clean dry plugs. Ignition on, Start cranking and shoot small bursts of starting fluid into the intake. It should fire, if it does go back to carb. Sounds like needle, seat, float problem.

Make sure your float isn't bent. Mine was bent and hanging up on the sides of the carb. Straightening it out took care of it.
