I have a 1996 Savage 650 that has been sitting idle in the garage for the last five months. The other day I tried starting it. It turned over and tried to start but then stalled and dumped raw gas on the ground through the hose coming out of the air filter housing.
I removed the carburetor and found the float valve would not shut off. I cleaned the caburetor and gas tank. I got the float valve to work. At least there was no more gas leaking with the gas valve in the prime position.
I recharged the battery and tried again. Again it turned over but would not start. At the end of the cranking cycle, it again dumped gas out of the same hose as before.
I could use a little help here and am looking for suggestions as to what to do now.
