homelite 330 chainsaw

Hello guys
sorry for the long absense.I am having a problem with a chainsaw.
I replaced the rubber boot connector it was bad.Cleaned saw up new sparkplug,fuel,runs perfect works real good.The problem is when you set it down the thing puddles up gas underneath it.I even opened the gas cap up a little bit to make sure it is venting.I have checked everything in it twice to see what it is but cannot see anything wrong.Do you have any ideas? If you pick the saw up gas runs out of the the bottom of the casing.Even checked the gas tank & fuel lines.Thanks again mowerman.

If you can't find a fuel line leaking, you probably have either a bad diaphragm or needle in the carb.
