        Hi Dave,
        I had the same problem on my 1994 Sprint which had the same basic motor. I took the petcock apart and found that the vacuum orifice is tiny, barely get the tip of a needle through it and it was blocked with dirt. This caused the thing to stay open and leaked gas. No idea if it is the same problem but I would have a look inside first. Easy job.
