Hi Doug, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, re-check the float height? ...and the float needle valve.

Ensure that the float needle valve and seat free of foreign matter and seals off fuel entry with the floated height adjusted correctly.

If needed, please see #s 9 & 39 from HERE.
