To solve the leak into the atmospheric vent make sure your float level is adjusted perfectly. The float should be perfectly parallel to the upper carburetor body or sit slightly lower than level. This keeps fuel below where the two halves of the atmospheric vent meet. Also make sure your carburetor halves are not warped when the bolts are tightened down. If there is a visible gap between the two halves of the carburetor at the atmospheric vent; sand down the two halves until the gap is gone.
As the piston in your engine moves downward it creates a vacuum which draws in air through the intake end of the carburetor. As the air travels through the venturi, the air’s pressure drops, and fuel is drawn down from the fuel bowl, and then back up through the main jet and emulsion tube. The low pressure air mixes with and atomizes the fuel. This air/fuel mixture continues through the intake valve and into your combustion chamber.
