sound like the needle in the carb is stuck or the float is also stuck. also make sure the float doesn't have a hole in it and is filling up with gas.

You need to check the oil level as it's likely contaminated with fuel and overfull. If so, drain all the contaminated oil out and refill to proper level with new engine oil. If the carburetor was dirty then cleaning may take care of your issue. If it was not very dirty or gummed up, then the float needle could be bad and or the seat may also need replacement to cure the carburetor.

It may also need the valves adjusted if all else looks good.

Best of Luck...:thumbsup:
