you ordered a new carb ?..or carb rebuild kit ?..sounds like the guy who rebuilt your carb didn't put it back together with the right jets..float needle..or your float needle has some trash stuck in the needle opening..take the carb back off.take your float needle off..take all your jets out..and with some carb spray cleaner..spray this on and in all your jets..openings..and make sure you remove your carb to intake o-ring before you spray your carb down with the cleaner...after you get all that done..with some comressed air..blow out all the openeings in your carb..put it back together..see if your fuel keeps flowing out the over flow tube..if it does..then you probally need to rebuild the carb with a new carb kit.

The float is sticking is my #1 educated guess. Welcome to the site...

^^^^^^^Agreed. I would say whoever cleaned or rebuilt it didn't get it real clean.

There is only two things that can cause that. needle is not seating correctly or the float is stuck. Even a new carb can have trash in it because of the milling and cleaning process.

Yeah, I agree with Submarine. Something is wrong with the new carb, too.
