    OS.65 LA fuel leak-help?

    my OS.65 LA is leaking fuel out the air bleed screw. I have the engine mounted at 90 degrees.I have seen some fuel dripping off of the air bleed screw.Is this normal? If not can i do anything to stop the drip? I am almost sure it's coming from around the screw .

    RE: OS.65 LA fuel leak-help?

    That's normal. It's caused by the fact that there are areas of low airflow in the carburetor, and fuel will tend to accumulate in those places. An upright-mounted engine will tend to let the leakage be sucked into the engine. A side-mounted or inverted engine will drip that small amount.
