Hello. My name is Tan.
We need to start with a spark test. This must be done using a spark gap tester. The spark must jump a 7/16" gap on the spark tester.
The leaking carburetor is a bad inlet needle in the cab that needs to be replaced. Debris gets in the inlet needle and cause the carb to flood dumping fuel out the carb. The carb will have to be removed, disassembled cleaned and a carb kit installed. You might get lucky and just clean the inlet needle. But I always just replace the inlet needle as you have to install the carb to see if the debris was just the problem or the inlet needle.
