I posted down a ways about my carb dripping fuel after rebuilding it. I increased the float setting to 9/32 and it still drips. I then increased it to 5/16 and it still drips. The dripping stops when the engine is running, but then starts to drip out of the hole in the bottom of the carb when I shut it down. It drips both with the new and the old fuel inlet valve. I bushhogged one of my wife's pastures yesterday that was 3-4 feet high in places and the tractor ran just fine. Shut it down and the slow drip started up again. I have another carb and used the float out of that one with the same results. Any ideas of what to try next? Temporarly, I just need to remember to close the fuel shut off when I park it.

I will rebuild the other carb and see what the results are, but there must be a reason my original carb drips, as it never dripped before I rebuilt it. Any ideas appreciated.
