I rebuilt my carbs in my 1984 interstate Cali emissions and gas is leaking from the bowl vent pipe discharge Between #4 and #2 carburetors.

What would cause this and what would I do to correct???

Thanks in advance!!

If it is from the vent obviously 1 or both bowls are overfilling. Could be aftermarket float valves or misadjusted floats.

Dave,

Thanks.

Took apart that side and double checked the factory floats as well as the float valve operation. After Taking this out of the bike three times as it was difficult to find the leak while installed I had purchased a syringe for bench testing and verified the leak went away after you told me how to correct.

Can't stress the value of bench testing until I chased my tail a few times!!!
Thanks again
