Leaking carb

I've got a small leak that started on one carb, just above the fuel line on my 96 vn750. It's leaking from behind a snap ring. Any easy fixes out there?

I'm going to guess, stuck float. Might see gas gushing out of the vacuum port if you remove the vacuum hose just below.

That's the rear carb, correct? On the right side?

Can try tapping the side of the carb hard to enough to jolt the float loose, without breaking anything. -or- Look up the 'blowback' procedure, sometimes works.

It's the carb on the left, took a picture of the one with the best lighting since they're identical. Leaking from the snap ring just above the fuel line. I'll try tapping the carb to see if it works and I'll check the vacuum line for fuel. Trying to avoid taking it to a shop. Repairs could cost more than the old bikes worth. Thank you.

if you take an afternoon you could remove the carb from the bike and replace the ring. If you havnt done it before its gonna take little less then the whole day. but i did it a few months for the second time and boy was i happy i learned myself how to do it. takes me about an hour, 2 tops
