I recall though that when I got it home it I found that it was leaking fuel from one of the float bowls. I called a buddy and asked what to do. Think I started a thread here too.

I never figured the problem out. I got frustrated and parked it. A few days later it started up and the problem was gone, never appeared again.
Do you know if the rubber hoses coming from carbs 2 & 3 are necessary? The ones that lead from the carbs and presumably back to the carbon canister? When I put the carbs back on I wasn't able to reconnect them (where they come to a T)
