I have noticed that gas is dripping by the gas line than enters the carb from fuel pump(leaking at the carb)... when I decelerate at an idle. I can see it leaking on the opposite side of fuel line (I thought this would be an easy fix "just tighten hose clamp at the carb nipple" didn't help). It doesn't leak when I rev the throttle just when I back it off. So do I need to take the carbs off and then get an accelerator pump rebuild kit, o-ring or what? Will I have to re-sync carbs?

You may want to go ahead and take it apart. If it was running properly before this happened, it may not need a Randakk rebuild, just certain rings that are letting it leak. Can't hurt to go ahead and change everything out though.

Your post is slightly confusing, is it leaking at the accelerator pump or at the fuel inlet? If the pump is leaking you can get an accelerator pump kit separately, remove the carbs, turn them upside down and change it. If it is leaking at the fuel inlet there are 2 o-rings on the nipple where it goes into the carb body. The screw that holds the nipple in also holds the accelerator pump linkage so it's a bit tricky.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Sorry about the confusing post...gas is dripping right where fuel line enters carb, so I thought the gas line hose clamp needed tightened and that didn't fix it. Someone told me its probably the acc. pump?
