Colman Generater Float fluding

I have a colman generater model PC0401850 serial 8983208C
It would start but not run for more than 1 minute I took the carb apart and found black specs in the bowl cleaned it when I replaced it on the enguine it floods with gas coming out of all the 4 openings in the carb
It is a fixed jet carb there are three sets of numbers stamped on it 9202 2902 214106
I tried to locate Colman generaters on the net but was unsucsesful

Any info on the type of carb kit or make of engine would be appericated

The engine will have the model number and other numbers somewhere on the engine. You will need to know the engine manufacturer name, model, etc. if you need parts. If you need further assistance post the engine make and model.

The trash in the carburetor is possibly from the fuel line breaking down. I suggest you install new fuel line and replace the fuel filter or install a filter if not equipped. Clean the carburetor again and see if it stops leaking.

Check engine oil to see if gasoline has gotten in the oil. If it has, change the oil.

You'll need to post the engine model, type, and code. If this is an OHV engine, the numbers are probably stamped on the valve cover.

Sounds to me like the carb isn't assembled correctly, or there is something hanging the needle valve open.

The parts list shows the engine to be a 3.5 HP Briggs & Stratton.

Look at this link to locate the model number:
Where can I locate the <i>Model</i>, Type, and Code numbers?

The following links should help with the carburetor cleaning:
What would be the cause of gas coming out of the <i>carburetor</i>?

How do I service the <i>carburetor</i> in my engine?

What are the procedures to follow when overhauling the <i>carburetor</i>?
