My Eska 1.2 hp outboard motor Carburator leaks gas when I lay it on it's side. It has a Keihin Carburator. There is two very fine holes on the Carburator, one in the front and one one the side. This is where the gas is leaking from. When it is running it does not leak only when it is off and placed on it's side. Are those holes there for a reason or is the Carburator defective. Hope someone can help me out with this problem. It's a very nice motor.

Does it have a shut off valve on the tank? If so turn the fuel off and run it out of gas before laying it down.
Thanks for the info.
