The atmospheric vent is divided by the two halves of the carburetor. As a result fuel can leak in between the gasket and flow into the atmospheric vent and down into the carburetor. This also causes loss of fuel and a rich air/fuel mixture. The fuel level needs to be slightly below the bottom half of the carburetor to prevent this. Warping of the carburetor halves can also create an easier path for fuel to leak into the atmospheric vent.
To turn your starter, electricity flows from the battery, through the ignition switch, and to the small terminals on the starter solenoid. This electricity causes an electromagnet inside the starter solenoid to connect the two heavy gauge wires and form a complete circuit. High amperage electric flow then goes through your starter, turning your engine’s flywheel.
