It has an electric fuel pump. The level indicator on the carb (the glass window) shows it to be above the line and there is seepage (gas) all around the carb base. So, basically are you saying that the float may be stuck and not shutting off the fuel when the bowl is full? I am hoping I can "easily" rebuild it, change the oil, air filter and clean the plugs (they are brand new). and all will be good. Is that a good plan for my first step? What do you mean by check the choke opening? Also, Right now none of the cylinders are firing, it won't start. Thanks for your help.
