Unbelievable !

Today I noticed fuel was running a steady stream down the carb. The engine was hard to start and when it did start had no power. At first I thought it was the seal on the float bowl so I made a new gasket for it. After I put that on it was still a steady stream so I took off the air filter and noticed it was soaking wet. I turned the fuel back on and a steady stream out the air filter...what the heck !!!???? So I studied the carb and noticed the float was full of fuel and did not float and thus didn't cut off the fuel flow. See Pic.
So I drilled a tiny hole and drained the fuel and sealed the hole and seam of the float. What next ???
