Sounds like the carb bowl float or needle seat is failing, clamp off the fuel line, remove the carb bowl, unclamp the fuel line, as fuel flows raise the float with minimum pressure see it the fuel flow stops, if it stops then the float probably has a hole and is a sinker rather than a float. Have a good one. Geo
