did you check the float when you had it apart? Shake it next to your ear and listen for a "sloshing "sound. If you hear the sloshing, then your float has gas inside it making it now a "sinker" instead of a float. Tecumseh's are notorious for developing pinholes in their floats.

It's also possible to install the seat upside down in the carburetor, make sure the little ridge in it goes down when installing. Another thing to check is the bowl vent, it needs to be clear, but I am guessing it is (thats the little pinhole on the side that fuel is coming out of).

corection indy typo didn't replace bowl how could that go bad it was the float that I replaced strange that the new one was plastic didn't want to make a secont trip to the parts shop

I found simaler thread to my situation so I payed clear atention to removing the old inlet seat and making shure that when instaled the new one's ridges is not visable.you say that the bowl vent is indeed the pinhole I described on the side of the carb's body(fuel well sqwert out of that orfice a good inch before gravity has any real treshhold on it) so it should be clear

would that suck tube orings efect the vacume stuff of the carb to alow it to flood like disclosed or am i way out in left field

No, the O-Rings on the nozzle tube will not cause the carburetor to flood gas. The inlet needle and seat, or the float is causing the problem, make sure the float moves freely and is not binding, and that the float bowl is not bent anywhere on the side that could be holding the float.
