    You have a problem with the float or float valve, Tear it back down and re-check and re-clean and try again. Did you replace the fuel filter, Clean the tank and flush fuel lines ?

    Like the man said ^^^^^^^^ The needle valve failing to seal is the only thing I can think of which will cause that problem.
