I have a 03 350 rancher es. Shut the gas of about two weeks ago and went to start it this morning and gas was coming out of the drain tube on the bottom of the carb. Turned the gas back off and it quits draining.
I was wondering if I may have a stuck float in the carb. Motor hasnt flooded out just the carb.
Any suggestions would help. Thanks

Yes, the float is stuck. You need to at least remove the bowl and give it a good spraying to release the float.

I would take the carb off and clean it. Its not a hard job to do, some times the float needle or seat will get build up on it and cause it to stick open or closed. Its best to remove it and give the carb a good cleaning, also check the float to see it has any cracks or holes in it, if it gets full of gas that will cause it to stick open also.
