Just purchased this 7016H ,carb leaking suspect float,not sure. There is lots of black soot on hood next to exhaust pipe.
I am new to site also to the older Simplicity Tractors.I'm thinking that a rebuild on the carb is in order .
There seems to be a weep hole at the bottom of the carb.Not sure about what thats for.
If anyone has an idea what the solution might be , I would appreciate it very much.
