John Deere 832 Snowblower with Tecumseh 8HP engine.

I have a John Deere 832 Snowblower w/ a Tecumseh 8 H.P. Snow King engine. It is Model #H80. It has a Walbro carburetor. According to my Chilton repair manual, the carb is #631635. I disassembled the carb and soaked it in "Gunk" carb cleaner. After reassembly and installation of the carb, the snowblower started and ran fine...accept for one big problem -- gas would pour out of the atmospheric vent. My manual says that if the gasket for the fuel bowl does not seal properly, it will interfere with the atmospheric pressure. I used a new gasket and the bowl did not leak. I used compressed air after soaking the carb in the cleaner which soaked for one hour. I'm wondering if I blew out some kind of plug. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -- Hoot

The needle and seat need to be replaced. It is leaking, causing the bowl to overfill.

Thanks for the information. I had wondered if that was possibly the problem, but it's great to have another opinion on this. I really appreciate the help...Have a great holiday!!

Hi all sorry if I am hi jacking the thread I am new to the forum and I am still not sure where to post my quesions but I have a similar problem with the bowl over filling and I noticed that the niddle and seat are missing which of course is why it over filling but I have also notice that when I push the primer button with the bowl full I get a spray of gas coming from a small hole in the housing of the carb right below the inlet for the prime hose.

the question is this suppose to have a hole there or nut or do I have aq bad housing
