My `99 Adventurer has developed a fuel leak at the center carb.
The outside of the bowl is wet.
My question is: what things might I look for.
It looks as though the tee may be a likley culprit since it looks as though the carbs are linked by tees and short pieces of fuel line.
I'm doubting the float since it is on the outside of the carb.
I'll be pulling them down this weekend.
Thanx for any ideas.
I'll post up what I find.

Well, I didn't pull the carbs but with an inspection mirror I was able to see that it was at the tee between the center and right carb.
It's also not made of fuel line as I had hoped rather a plastic of sorts.
The fuel tee setup is sold as a kit so I'll just order that and start the ugly task of pulling the carbs.
I reckon I'll change the throttle cable while I'm at it.

Turned out it was just a small crack in the fuel line right down by the tee.
A dollars worth of fuel line and two hours worth of cussin' and screamin', I'm good to go!
