Default RE: Leaky carb on supertiger....

The brass spraybar is just a close fit to the carburetor body. If it's leaking fuel, then something's messed up the fit.

First, though, please be sure you're actually getting a fuel LEAK. It's much more likely that you're getting raw fuel thrown from the front bearing, and it's just accumulating around the spraybar. Because fuel is sucked into the carburetor by the venturi, it's more likely that a bad fit will suck air into the carb, causing the mixture to go lean. Fuel leakage is not particularly likely.
