briggs carb 390323

Hi all, i just installed a rebuild kit on my carb now it is leaking gas out a hole next to the choke adjustment it looks like a bunch of little copper wires pushed together to make a plug. i have no idea what the purpose of this is for and why it is leaking gas.

Thanks in advance Travis

That is the bowl vent. Sounds like your inlet needle is not sealing when the float rises.
