I have had a drip from the carb for a couple weeks. Been running well up to a few days ago, but all of a sudden decided not to start. It will crank fine and get a pop but doesn't stay running. It's pretty cold around here now so I tried to choke and it didn't help. I pushed it out from the garage in the sun and let sit for a couple hours and retried, but same result. Generally when out in the sun it doesn't need a choke to start even first off. I figured its either spark or fuel, seemed to be getting fuel as it was dripping from the carb. I did take the plug out and it was wet with fuel so I put in a spare, but still no start. I removed again and shorted to the engine and was getting a blue spark. So seems like its getting flooded with fuel, @shadetree said before he thought the float was stuck. So working on removing the carb, almost done. Just have to remove the choke and throttle. I don't feel comfy taking it all apart and not losing anything so called a local shop. Hopefully get it over there tomorrow. Probably would be done but couldn't find my 10 mm wrench for the throttle, but located so will finish in the morning.
