Mothballed Murray

I have a 6HP B&S Murray mower that has been in storage/moving for the last 18 months. Before storage I drained all the fuel from the tank. The mower started on the first try after storage, but leaks fuel profusely from the prime bulb. Any suggestions?

Your needle in the carb is not sealing. Remove the carb bowl and clean it out. Clean out the bowl screw too. Remove the float and shake it. If you hear gas sloshing inside it, then replace it. Reassemble and you'll probably be good to go.
