The leak is from the diaphragm. Easy fix. Buy a new pair and replace them in both carbs.

There is no gas coming out the overflow tube and the fuel pump stops its work. But when I inspected the carbs I saw some wet sparkling a the bottom of the front carb. Not much, no dripping, but enough to cause a smell of gas in the engine compartment. When the car is hot, you cannot see it, the gas is evaporating.
