lawn boy fuel leakage

I have a used 6.5 hp lawn boy silverpro series 2 stroke like new
cuts good ,runs good ,very clean and I have taken it completley apart and cleaned everything that I coud see such as the carb filter ,gaskets are fine float moves freely.sometimes it revs up and down until it warms up but generally runs good.
does not leak fuel when running but after being stored a couple days it will all of the sudden leak fuel everywhere.
will a carberator kit fix this annoying problem?

Possibly. Check the float to see if it has fuel in it too.

Maybe wen you reinstalled the carburator one of your gaskets was not installed well or damaged.
