why is my Craftsman Lt 2000 tractor leaking gas?

Craftsman lt2000 model # 917-273143 w/a Kohler Pro 17HP OHV engine. This unit is appx 7 years old & more than not provides very good service. After filling plastic gas tank yesterday after mowing yard, it began to leak gas dripping to ground rather rapidly from beneath what seems to be the muffler assembly. Although I have removed shield from beneath muffler assy so that I could hopefully see what might be problem, no luck yet. I had to temporarily disconnect fuel line before carb and turn up in a held/locked position to stop the gas flow / leak issue. Any thoughts please?
