Craftsman Eager 1 Mower

Tried to get started; did startthen died out, noticed gas was coming out through the air filter, took off and saw that gas was coming out of a red tube and kept coming until I put the mower on its side. Any help would be appreciated. Battery is long dead and must start by hand but that is ok with me as long as it would run properly.

Mower and engine model numbers would be helpful.

I will guess the carburetor float is stuck and fuel is flowing straight though. Check the oil for fuel. If oil smells of gas DO NOT run, engine until carburetor is fixed and oil has been replaced.
