If this is the "adjustable from the top" type carb then there is an O ring
that fails. It is not very hard to replace, but can be a little tricky and
will probably screw up your carb settings and will have to be adjusted
again. I or several other folks here can tell you how to do the job if you
want to give it a try. You will need the replacement O ring from a carb kit.
