Gas leaking Kawasaki

I have a John Deere lawn tractor with a Kawasaki FC420V 14 h.p. engine. I parked it in the shed last fall and pulled it out today to get it ready for the mowing season. I did not use a fuel stabilizer this year. It started right up but.... while the engine is running gasoline is spurting out of a hole on the side of the carburetor. It is a small hole maybe 1/8" in diameter just behind the fuel inlet. The hole is part of the casting of the carburetor..... can someone advise me on a fix????

You'll need to take the bowl off the carb and clean the needle and seat. It's not shutting the gas off when the bowl is full.
