I just recently rebuilt the engine in my 2003 Honda rancher, with new rings, piston, clips, and insert, the day before I started I was at mud Creek for memorial day and noticed that every now and then it would leque but I payed it no attention, but when I finished everything in the engine and put it back together, the carburetor was pouring gas out the drain hole, and when I plugged it, the gas would come out of the intake. Anyway I cranked it up and it sounded as if it was idling at full throttle, fortunately the gas stopped pouring out but I had no idea what had happened so I killed it, took the fuel dump hose off and walked away. I did not take the valves or anything out when I took it appart, could the valves be the issue?

float needle stuck open, maybe trash got stuck in between the float tip and seat ?. inspect your oil for gas in it, as well as your air box !.

Got her up and going! Absolutely no smoke and no leaks! Has alita more power than before, I think the old piston and rings had just about had it lol I thank y'all guys so much for y'all's help and hope to be back in the future. I got my snorkel and my tractor exhaust put on and it sounds great, I just happened to find an old skid plate from another rancher I had in the past and threw it on there as well so now I'm ready to hit the ruts!
