It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.

Check your oil. Does it smell like gas? If so, don't run it even if you could. You will fry your engine. The float needle and seat in the carb are leaking. In other words, the float needle is not shutting off the gas when the bowl is full. You need to have them replaced.

It sounds like the inlet needle seat is not closing all the way,allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor.The inlet needle seat may have dirt in it.You will have to remove the carburetor bowl and check for dirt or debris in bowl,if so remove the float assembly and check for a peice of dirt between the inlet needle and seat.If there is none you may have to replace the carburetor or rebuild it with a carburetor kit.You should also chang the engine oil because the overfilled carburetor drains to the crankcase,filling it with fuel,check the oil level and see if it is high,that would indicate fuel is in the oil.Hope this helps
