Question Tecumseh carb float.

Equipment details:

Coleman 5 kw generator.
Engine: Tecumseh 10 hp, mod- HM100 159232K, S/N- 20900
Carb: mod- 107402M

After cleaning the carb for starting the engine after an extended lay-up, I experienced fuel running out of the carb.
I took the carb apart again to adjust the brass float and found it to have fluid in it.
I polished it with steel wool and cannot detect any cracks or corrosion.

Should I be looking harder, or does this float use a liquid as ballast?

If you can hear fluid sloshing around in it, pitch it. It's taking on fuel---that's the cause of your problem.

Sometimes the seams split or the solder joints get porous and the fuel seeps in there.

Most Tecumseh floats are shaped kinda like a toilet seat and should be readily available just about anywhere .

Float Problem

As Joe has very adequately covered, you need a new float and
this is a VERY POPULAR part to locate. ANY Dealer should have
one in stock. Part # 632019.
