The fuel leak will turn out to either be crap caught in the valve  
(pretty common), or a munged valve/seat. Take it apart one last time,  
pop the valve out and blow a bit of air or WD-40 through the carb fuel  
intake and take a peek at the sealing surface with a bright light.  
It's gotta be one, the other or something caught in between.
