1982 garelli leaks gas out of the air filter

My 1982 garelli leaks gas out of the air filter when I try to start it so how do I fix that and do I need a air filter inside of the plastic thing?

It should have a mesh filter of like 8 small expanded aluminum disc inner frame that fits behind the plastic cap.

A drop a 2 is kind of normal so I wouldn't worry about that but if it's dribbling out you've got problems.

I suggest you remove the carburetor and clean it take a Q-tip with some toothpaste on it and polish the needle seat that needs to be nice and shiny or it will leak.

make sure you remove all the plastic parts and don't apply chemicals to the plastic pieces.

There is also a filter mounted on the side flange where the fuel comes in be careful a lot of people over tightness mounting screw and strip out the housing.

Good luck or maybe not.
