i have been dealing with this issue for a while. just trying to figure it out before i take it to a repair shop. if you a squeeze the primer bulb it will force gas out the front of the carbs. i think it is a carb rebuild issue but wanted to get some opinions. repair shops make me nervous.

sounds like your float is sticking allowing gass to keep pouring into the carb. which it then overflows out of the front of th carb.

Float is heavy and allowing fuel in or needle and seat are dirty/worn and need to be replaced. Carb kit is needed and a thorough cleaning is in order.

Before you do a rebuild, have you tried running seafoam through it. It does wonders on any gas motor, did it on a generater I just bought resently that would barely run.Treated the fuel ran it a little, let it set till the next day runs like a champ now. Have been using it for years and am trying a new proudect from Star Tron at the moment.
