Are you sure the anti fire solinod in the bottom of the float bowl is working as this will shut the fuel off to the main jet, remove it, now switch the ignition on, the needle should retract fully into the housing, failing that there has to be some dirt in the jets, perhaps you could get the carb sonic cleaned this should help to unclog any jet orafices
