I have a Kohler Command 20 on a ZTR mower, the carb leaks fuel, so I ordered a kit and rebuilt it, (new needle and seat etc.) It still leaks. I proved it is the needle seat, because with the fuel bowl off if I raise the float with my finger it will shut off and not leak, although I seem to have to raise the float all the way. The float is entirely plastic including the tab that rests against the needle, so not adjustable.

I have rebuilt more carbs than I can count, but this has me baffled. Also, I can't imagine what the electric wire is going to the base of the bowl is for. Maybe a miniature solenoid, but what does it act on?
