Question Need help with cb160. Please.

Hello,
I am new to this site. I recently purchased a 1965 cb160, less than 4,000 miles, pretty good condition. I don't know a whole lot about working on motorcycles, but am trying to learn as I go. This bike ran when I first purchased it, but it ended up sitting for two weeks while I got the plates and registration in order. At that point, I was able to kick start it, but it would not idle. I thought perhaps the carbs/jets were clogged with old fuel, so I decided to clean them. I took the carbs apart and cleaned everything with the exception of the float, needle, valve and seat (because I couldn't get the float pin out.) After I got it back together, I tried to start the bike. Fuel began leaking from the bottom of the right carb. Not sure how to figure out what I messed up. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like the float on the leaking side is stuck. Try tapping the bowl with the end of a wrench and see if the leak stops

I'm sure you meant the soft end of a screwdriver
