leak out? from where? if fuel is leaking into the engine, you need to remove the carb assy and check out the float valves (might as well clean the whole thing then, too!). if fuel is leaking from the bowl gaskets or something, you need to remove the carb assy and replace them (might as well clean the whole setup...). Ya see where I'm heading with this line of thought?

Just leaking out onto the floor haven't checked just where it's coming from... I'll check weep holes if any ....... can the carbs be removed without synking the carbs if I don't touch anything ? ? that's my big worry :shock:

yes the carbs can be removed with out messing with the syc of the carbs. and yes you can clean them up a bit with out messing them up. but if the sea foam has loosen up any rust or other crap and it has got in to the carbs you`ll find a syc will be to your advantage. its not that hard to syc the carbs after you understand how its done. hope this is of some help .
