Briggs&Stratton stops and leaks

My Briggs and Stratton lawn mower Engine 124702-3106-01 starts, runs for a couple seconds and stops, then leaks all the fuel out??? Whats going on?

The fuel leaking out the carb throat,????
Sounds like the carb needs to be cleaned and re-kitted.
most likely the float needle and float is not keeping the fuel flow shut off.

Thanks!

Just pulled the float housing apart and found that the pin holes in the housing nut were gummed up. I will do total rekit and see what happens. Thanks much!
