What is the nipple on the bottom of the carburetor for.

There is a nipple on the bottom of the Carburetor and i dont know what its for. There is also a hose that came loose, and i think it came from the carburetor. when i attach the hose, i dont know if the other end of it is supposed to go somewhere or not. when i turn the gas valve on, the hose leaks gas, so im guessing its supposed to go some where. i can provided pictures if they will help.

Viktor Fruehauf give us the engine size and number or even better the number for the carb. If you do not have that give us more info on the 3-wheeler. Yes images will help. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question to post them with your question.

Viktor Fruehauf, Probably a vent #16 and overflow hose#12 . If either are dumping gas when you turn the fuel on, your float is stuck and it is flooding the carburetor and possibly engine. If oil smells like fuel do not run the engine until you get the carburetor fixed and the oil changed. ATV forum and carb. cleaning vid. links below and a link to new carbs. may be cheaper to buy new instead of rebuilding. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
