Gaz coming from the Tube-vent of B n S snowthrower engine

...after i have cleaned the float bowl. Gaz is leaking from the carb too. What's up? Could it be possible that I didn't replace the tube fuel transfer correctly? Or what? Thanks

Sounds like there is a problem with the needle not seating in the seat.

The best way would be to remove the whole carburetor and clean it with carburetor cleaner.
The pin holding the float in place needs to be slid out so you can get to the needle valve and seat.
If the bowl was dirty then the rest of the carb. is also dirty.
Make sure to shake the float to make sure it's empty. Some times they leak.
