MF 8 H 1590503915 built in 1973. HM 80 carb is a 155019. Would a 155019A carb rebuilt kit work for this? It will turn over but gas leaks out of the bottom of carb. Also don't don't think gettting any spark. This was my wife' s dads, been not used for long time. Thanks Leroy

Leroy it sounds like the float is stuck open or you have a leak around the float bowl if it is leaking around the bottom of the carb. I can usually pull a carb off and clean it without a carb kit as most of the time the gaskets stay in usable shape.

You gotta make sure you have spark or no matter what you do it won't fire.
