The float needle wasn't closing, dirty needle?

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Tear down the carb and you can either spray all the gunk out of the needle and seat with a can of carb cleaner, or just replace it....

Also try to use a fuel conditioner/stabilizer such as "STA-BIL" if your rhino is going to be setting for a while to keep the carb from gumming up.....
