Ive noticed that this motor runs hot it seems like have flushed system new thermastas my real concern is that the carn is getting really hot after I drive it I can smell gas really bad but don't see any leaks just worried about something catching fire any ideas
The gas fumes after shut down may be coming from the carb and out the air cleaner.
Do inspect all of the fuel lines from tank to carb. And especially the fuel pump. Connections, the pump and the carb are obvious areas. It takes very little fuel to generate the smell. So if you see just a damp spot that is it,
