Fuel leaks from the base of the air cut-off valve while the 76 wing is running. It then drips down the side of the motor and onto the muffler. Removed the top screws and tried to remove the valve and spring in the center (according to the manual), but it won't come out. Thought I might see something wrong with it.

Any ideas?

Shouldn't there be a gasket at the joint?

Yes, there is a gasket, but that's not where it's leaking. There are two small holes on both sides of the metal about 1 inch below the gasket line. Gas is slowly spurting out of both of the holes. With more throttle come more gas out the small holes.

Hi als and welcome to the forum. I think you will find that the rubber at the end of the valve is rotted and that's probably causing the valve to stick as well.
