Gas out the overflow usually means float or float needle issues. What kit was used for the rebuild?
Yep, carb problems. Go thru the carb again. Check the oil again for fuel contamination. Change it if there is any doubt at all.......any doubt. Flush and reuse the oil filter. Thanks for following up. We were curious to know how it turned out.

Used a Bronco carb kit from "World of power sports"
Never heard of them, but I know what the consensus will be here...use an OEM or Shindy kit to rebuild. I have an ultrasonic cleaner specifically for parts cleaning and simple green mix works wonders on carbs. Unless your throttle rod is rusted and seized. Ask me how I know...

Ya. I ordered the kit before I did any research so I will order the shindy kit. Amazon has them for 18 bucks. I to have an ultrasonic and carb was cleaned in that. I did not polish the float valve seat as has been mentioned in other posts so I will do that also before throwing carb in ultrasonic.

Hi All,
Been a while, was busy at work. I took the carb apart again and it was dirty as ****. There was crap all over the jets and a chunk of something on the float seat. The guy I had rebuild it will be shot! LOL. Put the shindy kit in it after I cleaned the body and it fired right up! WOOHOO! It blows NO SMOKE and purrs like a kitten after I adjusted the carb. Gonna start putting it back together.

gas dripping from the overflow is most likely the carb overflowing , maybe from trash coming from the tank that is recontaminating your carb ---the smoke could be from oil that was in the muffler and needs to burn off , or maybe the rings have not set yet , give that some run time and it might clean up ---- if it were me , when I got it running 1/2 ass good , I would sell it off and get a better model atv , the 350 D and A are not a good riding atvs , the steering sucks , parts are hard to find , and finding someone for help who really knows that bike inside and out just got a lot harder with the crash of this forum
