Went out this morning to fire it up and upon turning on fuel I am getting a stream of gas out of a small port just about the float bowl.
Photos in link have hole marked in red.
Is this a overflow and the carb float is stuck or ??

Could be trash under the needle, or the float may have a hole in it and filled with gas, thus causing it to sink, or something else. Either way, a tear down and good cleaning is needed, and I would put a kit in it while I was doing it.
