Hi, You did a good job of assessing the problem. It sounds like the float valve in the carb is the likely problem. This would overfill the carb when sitting, flooding the engine and the pressure in the bulb pump would go down as the fuel leaked out. Float valve should be investigated and that should Fixya!

My problem ended up being the spring on the reed valve being weak.But at the same time and while I had already had my carb broke down I took a can of carb cleaner to it and cleaned it. In order to replace the spring on reed valve you will have to buy a new one, but don't worry I only payed about $6.00 for mine. You may also look into replacing your primer bulb if you haven't already because may allowing air to build up in your gas line while you are basically idiling.Once you get the carb straightened out you may have to reajust it again. If I might be able to help you again you may contact me at email@example.com.
