    I've got a 15hp Evinrude '88 model. When I Tilt the motor up, ant fuel left in the carb will run out the front of motor. It doesn't effect the running of the motor, It doesn't miss, spit or sputter just kinda makes a mess. I have looked to try to find where it actually is coming from and can't see a thing. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance
    Eric

    Sounds like it is time to rebuild and soak those carbs. Its not uncommon for them to leak a small amount but when it is all leaking out then I would remove them and rebuild them.

    Try rebuilding it with the best kit you can find. Also check all sealing areas with a straight edge if possible, and check all lines.
