Like it says, I have a leaky carb on a '79 sporty. I believe it is the original carb. It it leaking from the accelerator diaphram. I replaced the diaphram and sanded the small plate, but she's still a leaker. this is my first experience with Harley, so I don't know if this is a common problem. And if it is, how do I fix it? It is also leaking from the overflow tube. This I believe is a crappy petcock. Would a leaky petcock also cause the accel. leak?
Thanks for your help
Shawn

Rad, I'll check that out. Are these carbs any good? According to the guy who built it, the motor is 40 over. Is there a reasonable ($$$) replacement?
thanks,
Shawn
