This is the same problem I have with a Mac 3200. I have: (1) A line from the primer bulb to the front port on the carburator. (2) line from fuel tank, with attached fuel filter, to the other primer bulb port. (3) Line from port on back of carb. to ????. I thought it must be a pulse line, but not certain, and don't know where to run it to. Please let me know when you find out.

You've hit the nail on the head.The float,needle and seat are stuck wide open.Once the carburetor bowl is full of fuel the float rises up on top which pushes the needle back into the seat shutting of the flow of fuel.As the engine consumes that fuel the float drops and opens the needle and seat filling the bowl and shutting off the fuel again.Things that cause this process to not work are:forgetting to empty or run out the fuel before storing it for the winter.Sediment buildup in the bowl.Mineral deposits in the needle and seat.
Not emptying out the carb can leave water in the bowl which freezes,crushing the float.It also promotes sediment buildup and mineral deposits.The float when crushed or cracked will not float,nor shut off fuel.Sediment takes away capacity of fuel in the bowl,very necessary for wide open throttle.Mineral deposits build up to the point that the needle and seat can't make a good seal so fuel will continue into the carburetor.
Enough information yet?
To repair,take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl.There are the float and needle and seat assemblies.All three need to be replaced,$10 max.After you get the parts replace one piece at a time so you can see how they go together.Next replace the spark plug, engine oil and air cleaner.They are fuel fouled and even if you could get the engine started will only add more damage to your engine.BEFORE you put the new plug in cycle the engine by pulling the starting cord a few times to get rid of the excess fuel.When there's now more fuel in the cylinder replace the plug,filter and oil.
That's it!Take your time and you can do it just fine.Re-post if you have any more troubles.

If #1 doesn't work, the ports in your carb could be clogged. I just dealt with this problem this weekend. This is a relatively easy fix. Locate your carburetor and find the aluminum bowl underneath. On the bottom of the bowl, you'll find a bolt. Loosen the bolt (gasoline will come out because the bowl is a reservoir for gas, but please make sure you've turned the gas supply off) and remove the bolt and the bowl. Clean any debris out of the bowl. The ports are holes in the bolt you removed. Make sure that air can pass through these holes (I blow through them, but I don't mind the taste of gas too much. Probably NOT healthy. You can use thin wire, carb cleaner, etc..) Reassemble and your motor may start, if this was the problem. Make sure that the bowl seats properly and that you are careful screwing in the bolt, lest you cross-thread it. Hope that helps.
