    Warmed up the sled for few and it was dripping gas from the area where the belly pan ends and the rods join on the bracket.
    Also some fuel coming out of the exhaust. Only does it when it runs of course. Can a fouling plug do that?

    Sure coupled with a bad needle/seat or a stuck misadjusted float.

    I would replace the needle and seats in the carbs. Also add a fuel shut off valve in the line.

    I will when it warms up. Live with it 'til then I guess.
    Study the assembly diagrams. Sick of worrying how much
    it'll cost to pay someone. When I keep buying older sleds
    I should figure out how to do simple fixes myself anyway.

    Make sure your hoses off the end of the bowls aren't cracked, I had that problem once, just filled up the tank, come out to go riding in the morning all on the garage floor!! I now turn the shut off valve off just incase, but i also put new black rubber fuel line hoses instead of the clear ones there too with a hose clamp intead of those spring clamps. Just a thought.
