Hello rclark!

Is it flooding when it is running, or is if flooding (leaking out) when it is shut off? The mixture screw settings may help if it is flooding when running. The needle and seat and/or diaphragms may be the cause of leaking when shut off.

You may want to check your spark arrestor screen, in the muffler, before blaming the carb. That will give the indication of an overrich condition, and also exibit a lack of power. 'lint.
