    Re: Gas Leaks

    First, check the float level, it is probably set to high and when priming you are pushing fuel out of the float bowl vent. Second, the shroud is a major part of the cooling system and running an engine with it removed you are asking for an early death of our engine.
    This is only my opinion, and many will say it ain't worth a darn, as I'm only a retired grease monkey instructor and not a professional mechanic. Use what I post at your own risk as you know teachers only know book knowledge.
