    Dauntless V6

    I am having trouble getting the carb set up. I have run out of gas twice and both times the engine would not restart. It appears that the float sticks or jams and the fuel gushes into the manifold. I know there are problems with this carb and I thought I had it solved, but no such luck. Have opened carb and reset float both times. Anybody have any ideas?

    knee jerk answer - check float, needles and seat, they may stick when float drops that low ....
    maybe replace...as you are opening carb to inspect.

    took carb apart and the main metering jet was jammed n the open position. Reset float drop and setup the so the main jet wouldn't hang up again. Installed and all is well ..... for now. Thanks for your help, it's really appreciated/
