Zenith carb question

Recommended Posts

I have a 1919 Olds truck that seems to run decent but once shut off, weeps fuel out the bottom. It was pouring out but once we cleaned the lower end that stopped. It’s a very simple needle/float system and it seems to be seated. I think it’s an updraft carb so is this normal that on shutdown it would weep some? Starts easy and unless it’s evaporating quickly, I don’t see any weep when running, only once off.

The weep hole is at the right of the two jet type screws visible at the bottom. Watching from underneath, it looks to come from there and wick down off those bolts. The weep hole is just a hole behind the choke and doesn’t look to go internally.
