Quick fuel leak?? Opinions please
So once again Gracie throws a bug in my cereal!!
I've been starting her regularly and trying to drive her when possible and the weather allows- side note: Carbs were just rebuilt...any how, I went to start her today and she started right up and ran brilliantly, suddenly, I smell a little gas, I look under and sure enough there is a small-ish drip coming out of the overflow, I revved the engine a bit to try and get some fuel flowing through the carbs and the overflow stopped, I am assuming that maybe some little piece of s**t might have passed through and caused a float needle situation but only temporary and cleared itself.
Also, what is that, for lack of a better term, filter looking gizmo on the overflow, I have attached a pic that I found on someone else's posting of it, wondering what that is all about.
