Calling all masters of small engine repairs!

I need help with a 5hp tecumseh engine. I have a leaking carb. I have cleaned, replaced all gaskets and it still leaks. I've seen this problem on a friends 4 wheeler and we never solved it. Do any of you out there have some advice for me?

On my 5hp tec, I had to replace the fitting that connects the gas line to the carb.
If it has that white plastic it gets a split in the plastic.

If gas is coming out of the throat, then its likely a problem with the float and seat.
