    The float itself needs to be at the proper angle as well as what was mentioned above. I buy carb rebuild kits on eBay for 10 bucks and it usually works out well. Donyboy on YouTube makes great small engine repair videos.

    Take bowl off and dry good...put a little silicone around whole bowl lip and seat rubber seal ...let dry for about 20 minutes,this will hold in place and not slip off bowl when mounting to carb...........good luck..

    What? You still did not respond to where the fuel is leaking from. If it is a rubber gasket around the float bowl and it is leaking there you need to remove the bowl/gasket and clean the surfaces of each. The bowl with sandpaper than brake cleaner/carb cleaner, than you need to hit the bowl lip with sand paper than a solvent or air at least.

    The float has the right way or the wrong way, and that is up or down.

    Actually you are wrong, as a mater of fact there is a tool that sets the correct space ( hence the proper angle ) of float and also is used to remove and install new needle seat. Tecumseh carburetor tool #670377.

    The gasket goes on the lip on the carburetor side, not the bowl if the gasket is deformed or oversized you must replace the gasket, do not use silicone.

    The top of the float should be 31mm from the lip where the gasket goes.
