Sounds like excessive fuel in the float bowl.

You might check the float for leakage by removing it and shaking

it for possible fluid sloshing inside.  Also check to see if the float needle is actually seating and shutting off fuel by holdiong the carb upside down and blowing into the fuel intake port. . Turn the carburtor upside down and see if the float is resting parallel to the carburetor body. An 11/64 drill bit should be able to roll across the body of the carburetor just under the float.
