Okay gents. Last night I noticed fuel leaking out of the carb on my Mag III. I have two of them and have never had an issue with the first one I purchased over 20 years ago.
Consequently, the newer one is the one that is leaking. I recently replaced the rope and filled it with fuel during the holidays to crank it up. Started with no issues. I even started it on multiple days to ensure it is running fine before my next ice adventure. It wasn't leaking during warmer weather.
Last night I went out to start it in the garage and smelled fuel. Upon further inspection I could see it was wet near the carb body and idling screw. I observed for a while and noticed fuel would bead up and drop on the base.
Upon starting it will not leak and idle and rev up just fine.
Anyone else see or have this issue?
Been hemming on purchasing a battery operated auger, but do not want to pony up the money. Maybe it is a sign.
