You will be able to tell if this is the problem by taking the float out and visually look to see if there is fuel inside the float itself.Hope this might shine some more light on the problem that you are having.

I took apart the carb, and took a look at the float and it seemed fine. I put it all back together and tried to start it up, it didnt start, however, it did NOT leak any fuel which is good news. Now i am stuck because now that the fuel isnt leaking, i have no idea what the problem is.
