I've got a 78 Jag 3000 that I'm fixing up. Latest problem is that it's leaking gas from the carb. It usually starts ok but then starts leaking gas after 5 to 10 seconds of running then continues steadily after that.

I'm NOT mechanically inclined but willing to try anything. I just recently replace the coil pack. Other than that it was previously running fine.

Here's a video I took:

You will have to take the bowl off. Your floats are sticking or your needle and seat isnt sealing. May have a spec of dirt in it or just wore out. Where its leaking is the vent. Your carb is filling all the way up and blowing out the vent has to be a certain level in the carb. Probly needs a cleaning its pretty simple inside. Look up a you tube on mikuni carb cleaning
