I have a replica of a 47 knuck, if I leave the petcock on, fuel will overflow out of the carb, as though the float or needle are not working, but the local harley shop says its normal. I don't buy it. Any thoughts?

I think your dealer is a moron.

Either the needle is sricking or held open with dirt, or the float is bad, or the float level is incorrect.

What do you mean REPLICA?

It's either a knuck, or it isn't.....:eek7

It is a replica, not an original Harley, my uncle had a 47 when he was young and wanted to build one like he had. The engine is from V-twin, tranny and frame is from TTC(?), its a company that sells replica kits. He had a Harley dealer assemble it. Everything on it is exactely like the original, down to the cloth wiring. He spent around $35K building it. It was built in 2007.

Ahhhhhhhhh..........gotcha.

Carb needs to come apart again.

How's the leak coming along regarding oil?

Replica motor shouldn't leak. Chain oiler might be open too wide.
