check the float for heaviness, or sloshing fuel, if it is, that will sink, letting fuel by, then check to make sure its not sticking, inlet needle is doing its job, the little needle can get worn, letting fuel by, or the needle seat can start to leak. were these replaced? also check the oil for a gas smell, and change it if it does.
