Angry Briggs and Stratton 190432 type 6035

I recently did a carb rebuild on my wood splitter with a the above mentioned engine on it.* It use to work great but this summer I haven't been able to get it to run just right.* I noticed that fuel was leaking straight through the carb and escaping out the bottom of the air filter assembly (not running at the time).* This only occurs when I fill up the tank.* If I let it sit for a while and all the fuel spills through, it runs great for about 5 minutes or so, then runs out of gas.* I tried to do a rebuil on the carb, which had a bunch of corrosion in it, but this did not fix the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you have a lot of corrosion in the body casting there are several areas that fuel could be leaking from, or it could simply be a flooding issue, that may have something to do with the float or float needle.

Your best bet would be to replace the carburetor, even if you can get it to work, chances are it's going to keep causing problems as once there is corrosion it will continue to deteriorate and cause more problems down the road.
