leaky carb, but where from?

Howdy. I discovered this weekend that my 32/36 manual choke Weber is leaking fuel around the throttle linkage. It's hard to see exactly where it's coming from, but it's dripping off the throttle control lever. Where might the actual leak be?

 

Thanks

Probably in your float itself, causing it to become an, um... sink.

 

Or there's junk in your fuel/ float bowl, which is wedging the needle valve open a bit, and causing the fuel level to rise too high.

 

Look down the carb itself with the choke and the throttle open- bet it's puddling in the bottom of the manifold, too.
