You can pick up a complete owners/service manual as well as the parts manual on cd. I got mine for my GL1100, then when I upgraded to my GL1200, I picked up another set from the same person.
Contact Wanda G at firstname.lastname@example.org. I believe she still sells the cd's for around $7.00 including the shipping anywhere in the US.
When I got mine, she included both the owners/service manual and the parts manual. Pretty big to download, at around 200mb.
Manuals are good enough, I just rebuilt my engine, and all 4 carbs and I'm no mechanic.

SOURCE: honda 750 shadow gas leak
It is a vent / overflow hose. It drains to the atmosphere / street. If gas is coming out and isn't stopping then a float is stuck.
Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and look for any misalignment of float pin, needle or adjusting tang.
Now re-clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a trap bowl ). INSTALL AN IN-LINE FUEL FILTER..

Carbies will always look clean inside the plunger assembly. fuel does not make it up into there in normal operation. They exists for vacuum operation of the constant velocity plungers to go up and down adjusting the mixture automatically for the engine with different throttle applied. If the bike runs with you spraying carb cleaner into the intake... then thats good... at least it runs for you :)
You need to check that you have the fuel petcock turned to prime initially to be sure that there is gas filling the carbies. Vacuum operated fuel petcocks can become nogo from sitting for extended periods. The bike uses a BS34 Mikuni carb. Parts are pretty good to find for them. They often have a drain screw on the bottom of the float bowl. You can check here to see if fuel is filling the carbies by backing this off a couple of turns, fuel should drain.
Most likely you will need to remove, strip and clean out the carbies thoroughly. They will have varnish from old fuel clogging jets and passageways in the carbs. Only way to do this is remove them and completely disassemble and clean them to be sure that they are good to go. Having a new gasket kit there to do this is often worthwhile. There is also a rubber O ring under the air/fuel idle mixture screw that perishes and will stop the bike from idling correctly.
You can have a read/download of an excellent guide written for the XS650 that uses the same carbies here. It will at least help you to learn what you are dealing with.
Have fun... well it aint much fun rebuilding carbs, but will be worth it to get the bike going again. Cheers

fuel, fire, timing, and compression. Check those last two.Make sure spark is blue,and that battery is full.If the compression is in question you could temporarily boost it by using oil on top of the piston to make compression higher .
