Sounds like you may have gotten some trash (possibly a piece of fuel line) in the carburetor inlet needle. Remove the bowl and float and needle to clean out the inlet port. The ticking was probably from the gas hitting the hot insides of the combustion chamber. After you get the leak fixed, you'll probably have to change the oil, since gas probably got into the crankcase.
