Question about Garden
I have gas leaking out of the bottom of the carb and I have so much gas in chamber that the engine won't turn over. I pulled the spark plug out and flushed gas out of chamber, put the plug back in and it starts right off. I have a fuel solenoid and I was wondering if this could cause this problem. I had a previous solution that the needle valve in the float wasn't stopping the gas flow. I was wondering which would be a more likely solution. Any info on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Put a fuel shut-off in line as it leave the tank. I had the same problem.

Replace the spark-plug, check the quality of the fuel(gas that is mixed or was stored more then three months is stale and wont fire correctly) make sure the fuel and air filter not clogged. If there is no change then your problem may be more technical, a nest may be restricting the govenor or you missed something with the carb and there still is debre causing it to stall.

The problem is the float needle and seat are leaking. It is not shutting off the gas when the bowl is full. The bowl fills up, then runs down the intake through the intake valve into cylinder, past the rings into the crankcase. Fairly common problem. Just replacing the rubber tipped needle probably will not stop the leak. The pressed-in brass seat needs to be pulled out and a new one pressed in also. Possibly there is some trash or rust in the carb that has gotten between the needle and seat, but in my experience, it usually takes replacing both to fix.

If it starts cold and runs for 10 min then it sounds like the fuel cap is not venting properly, try runnin engine with fuel cap loose and see if it dies. 9 times out of 10 the fuel cap is the culprit. Let me know
