My 8N is flooding badly. It was not starting and I could smell gas. I removed the air tube from the air cleaner to the carburetor and I noticed that gas was flowing out of the carb. I let the tractor sit and removed and cleaned the spark plugs. When I got back at it the tractor would fire, but not run for more than a few revolutions. Again I noticed fuel flowing from the carb. Does this indicate an issue with the needle valve or float? It seems to me that something must be not quite right in the carb.
