Jerry, Welcome to the world of engines with carburetors.

The fuel well plugs can leak and the best way to fix them is to use an epoxy to seal both wells. The wells are located under the bottom of the fuel metering rods.
I totaly agree on the epoxy. Have done it many times to cure that tricky question, "Where did my gas go?" Evaporation over night? Not very likely. Fuel drip from the well plugs pretty common with these carbs. A good 5 minute epoxy works fine.

He said, "4 or more days." My vote is evaporation. Typical with ANY carburetor.
