Hello bigbrass!

That is a common problem. The carb is letting fuel leak into the engine when it is not running. You should be able to solve the problem by rebuilding the carburetor including replacement of the inlet needle. When you go to get a carb rebuild kit, either take the carb with you, or write down the brand and any and all markings on the carb to be sure you get the right kit.
