By spraying it you may have inadvertently blown dirt or grime even further into the carb. It doesn't take much to cause the float to stick open. This would result in a constant flow of fuel into the bowl. Once filled it will escape via the overflow.
The best way to clean the carb is to remove it from the motor, disassemble it and clean it using a small brush. If you have never done this before just take you time and make sure you have a clean work space to do this in. There are really very few parts to this type of carburetor and once you have done it a couple time you can take it apart clean it and have it back on in under an hour.
Hope this helps.

try 11/2 to 2 turns from seated position if it had a washer and o ring on it make sure you install them back on.

Testimonial: "thank you she is up and runnig."
Fuel over flow is normally caused by dirt getting into the fuel lines and blocking the valve in the float bowl. The reason that if wont fire is because there is too much fuel in the engine and it is flooding.
Turn the fuel off and remove the carb.
take off the float bowl and remove the float. held in by a bar.
check the valve and blast compressed air into the valve seat to clear any debris.
Rebuild the float bowl but do not put the case back on yet. a simple test to see if it has worked is to gently hold the float whilst blowing down the fuel line.
As you move the float up and down by hand it should be harder or easier to blow, resulting in a complete stop when you close the valve completely. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY TOO MUCH PRESSURE TO THE FLOAT BOWL)
as this could bend the float. Once happy with the operation of the float, replace the case and install back on the bike.
Please reply if this does not fix the problem.
