Geez, one think after the next……
I got my volt meter out to try to start learning about why my hazard warning lights aren’t working. I dropped the gauge panel, moved the key to the on position, and was poking around to learn about various voltages.
It took me a few minutes to realize the the fuel pump was still clicking every 5-10 seconds. Normally it clicks a few times and stops. So I turned off the power, got out of the car, and immediately smelled gas and found a small puddle under my air filter canister.
Took the air filter out and several more tablespoons of gas poured out.
I have a normal ‘68 dual Zenith Stromberg setup:
When I looked into the air intake opening, the rear was dry, but the front had a puddle of gas in there. It’s still a bit wet in this pic:
No leaks in any of the lines going into the carbs.
So, how bad is this likely to be?
The carbs terrify me…
