    calling carb experts

    both carbs on 700 are leaking straight oil. ive verified its not the lines. also i have one carb on my 1050(pto) that was rebuilt by a shop last fall showing the same symtoms.

    ive ordered two rebuild kits for the 700. my question is , i can follow the rebuild posts on this site but, what would, in the carb let oil by? and for the slow weep on the 1050 is

    there a chance of drawing air through whatever is causing the leak? not knowing how the passages or working order of the carbs i just cant make a educated judgement call

    myself. i attached a photo where i find the bottom of the carbs saturated with oil . please share some insight? also is it possible to get by on the 1050 with just some selected

    gaskets?

    Have you confirmed that the oil is not seeping out where the oil hose attaches to the nipple? How are the oil lines clamped? Are the oil hoses a snug fit on the nipple?

    Try cleaning up all the excess oil and then wrapping thin strips of clean white cotton cloth around the oil nipple fitting. See if the cloth gets oil soaked.

    is the ski premix??if not its either the outer diapraghms or the lines themselves,if its premix it could be the seat o-rings leaking or the metering block o-ring gasket or the outer diapraghm

    its not premix.

    k447, ive cleaned the area and added a ty wrap with the spring clip on the oil nipple. i have wrapped the lines and even manipulated the line to run away from the carb to take the oil another direction but it still builds on the manifold.

    i take a paper towel and wipe the bottom of the carb and its there in abundance. when i removed the carbs the bottoms were soaked with no evidence of it running down from the injection nipple. that makes me believe its slowly gravity feeding through the carbs and out.

    i just dont know the oil injection path, parts or seals in the carb to say "ah there's the problem" upon rebuild.

    it be nice to share an educated experience if i can rebuild and remedy and can help point others in the right direction. thanks

    is it that simple? just a cover gasket? the oil just sits behind it like a mini storage tank?
