With gas getting into the valves and elsewhere, the problem is that the carburetor is dirty and the needle is not shitting off the gas when the float tells it to. You will need to clean and rebuild the carburetor with a ner complete carburetor repair kit. Make sure that your valves are set again and that the adjustments are tight.Please give me a good rating as this is the only way that this site will pay me for my time.Contact me here again if you need more help.
