    Same thing recently happened to me...In my case, water got in the carburetor bowl and frozen float down, gas was flowing through the carb just with gravity. Checked out youtube, cleaned the carburetor, good to go!

You said you replaced the needle, but did you replace the seat that the needle moves in to? If the seat is bad, it may not be sealing well even when the carb is full of gas and the float is pushing the needle in to the closed position. If it is a tecumseh carb, you can buy a kit that comes with a new needle, new seat, new bowl gasket and new bowl nut gasket. The kit is about 3 dollars and should fix you up. The kit i am referring to is part #1606506, but you may want to check and make sure that will work for your model. Regardless, the same pieces that fit your carb should do the trick.

I found Gasoline inside My Craftsman riding mower engine, this is the third time I have to drain it and replace it with new oil, somehow gasoline is flowing inside and I have no idea where it is coming...

There is a fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of the carb and it is most likely stuck open. The gravity flow of the fuel causes it to force through the carb, through the intake valve, through the cylinder and then into the oil sump.

Gasoline comes out when I pulled out the spark plug. Without the spark plug a large jet of gasoline comes out when I crank it. The gasoline in the tank is gone by the next day and comes out the spark plug...

The carb's needle is stuck open remove carberators float bowl and replace the needle and seat for the float or you can spray the needle and float with carb cleaner while working the float up and down this may work if you don't want to replace parts.
