I have a Stuart Turner P55 8hp installed in my fibreglass putter. The carburettor leaks fuel into the bilge. It leaks out of a what looks like an overflow passage on the starboard aft side (flywheel facing forward) of the carburettor. I have tried tightening the nut up that is below it however it continues to spill over into the spill tray and eventually the drip tray below the engine and finally into the bilge.
I thought this was normal when priming but it continues while the engine is running.
Is this normal?
what can i do to stop it?
