Greetings,

Uh....what's the question? Why did you take the vacuum line off to begin with?

Regards,

If it ran 10 miles with the vacuum line off the auto fuel valve, then I would say no, it's not working. Should have died when the fuel in the carb bowls was depleted.

You have two problems. Bad fuel shutoff valve and stuck or leaking float valves.

Both should be addressed.

Your shut off valve obviously isn't working, but not the cause of the carbs leaking.

You're needles/seats are causing the gas to leak in to the crankcase.

In other words, if your carbs weren't leaking you wouldn't have gas in your crankcase even if your petcock wasn't working properly.
