There is limited information we can give you to the specifics. If you aren't comfortable doing it, then take it to a shop.

Simply put, you need to take the bowl off the carb, spray it with cleaner and loosen up the float. Chances are good you should rebuild the carb, but just a quick clean would probably get it running again.

If you buy a service manual, it will give you more specific instructions on some do it yourself maintenance you can do, but without being there, we can't offer much more help than just generic 'do this do that' type of advise.

The do this do that advise currently, is take the bowl off and spray it with cleaner to loosen up the float.

If you do it your self put the carb on a clean surface so you will be able to lay out every thing you take off the carb. Thats just so you dont drop any thing on the floor and it get lost. I have done that. If possible get a frind to help that has done it before but deinitley get a manual.

sounds liken a blockage in the needle and seat , the seat needle is cliped to the float but probably needs rebuilding like 99 said.

You mean the bottom hose on the carb? I assume that is an overflow, so now the float is stuck open. Sounds like you need to pull the whole thing off and give a complete cleaning.

If there is alote of trash in it the jets could get stoped up. If its that dirty take it all apart and clean it. If you have a air compresior . carb cleaner blow the jets out after cleaning. Take all the jets out spray cleaner through all jets and were they came out of.
