Your needle/float is stuck, which will allow fuel to flow though the intake...past the piston..and into the crankcase. If has been awhile since you used it, most likely the gas has gummed up the insides of the carb. Otherwise, you may have had something get into the fuel bowl that is keeping the needle from closing. Best way to solve is to remove and clean the carb. Replace fuel filter if needed also.
Hope this helps

Your carberator has crud, or rust, or glaze in it. The carberator will have to be removed, soaked in cleaner for three hours and then rebuilt using the proper carberator kit from any auto parts store. If you need to hire this done expect to pay about 35 dollars.

No, the only adjustment on the carb is the high/low idle. Check your engine gaskets for leaks using either water or carb cleaner, preferably carb cleaner. Otherwise just replace the carb, it's around 60 dollars.
