    Just found a 97 carbed bird with 636 miles. Wow. The guy that had it before me just liked looking at it I guess. Not me. She's been out and broken in properly. This brings me to my delimma. There's fuel coming from the vent tube of the carb. It looks like the one center left. I searched this...
