My snowmachine is spitting out fuel out of this vent. Is that the overflow vent for the bowl?

How do I resolve this problem?

The carburator is a Mikuni VM34SS.

If it uses a needle and float check to make sure the float hasn't sunk. You may need a new float if that's the vent.

(Are you sure that a vacuum or vent line hasn't popped off of that port?)

Drop the float bowl and see if the gas shuts off when you raise the float with your fingers, if it don't you need to check the seat on the doodaa that is on top of the float. It may have some shit or crud on it.While you have the float in your hand, shake it to see if it has gas in it, that will stop it from shutting off too.Hope this helps, later. Wayne
