Can you please tell me why as soon as I paid my money i have lost all connection

It sounds like the float or float valve is stuck which is allowing fuel to flow through the carburetor when it should not be.You will need to remove the carburetor, cleaned and probably rebuild it with a new repair kit.I believe that this will take care of your fuel problem.
