lawnboy leaking

I bought a lawnboy 2 cycle mower from a used lawnmower shop about 6 months ago. Recently it started leaking gas through the air filter after it runs a while or will start leaking when I shut it off. I have checked the lines and everything looks fine but it still leaks like crazy. How do you get to the carb? Is there an online source for manuals with exploded views?

leaking carb

You did not give the model of the Lawn Boy. There is one carb that parts are not available anymore that leaks fuel and can only be fixed with a shut off valve. Most Lawn Boy carbs can be fixed with a new needle and seat kit available from your Lawn Boy dealer. The rubber tip on the needle valve gets hard and does not seat well and leaks. Most use part number 92-9697 but take your model number.
