s-200 toro snowblower

I'm having problems with gas filling in the air cleaner tube. when it sits it will drain the tank. I put a new kit in but it still does it

Floats sticking in the carburetor, or the float bowl has a leak in it causing it to say down.
Just remove the bowl on the carburetor and lift the float up by hand and see if it totally shut off the gas when lifted.
Did you just change the parts or did you remove the whole thing and spray carburetor cleaner into the valve seat and all the other ports.

You only said you "put a kit in it"??? What was the "kit" you installed?

Joecaption1 is on the right track. It sounds like you've got a float and/or needle valve that is not working properly. When gently lifting the float up it should completely stop the flow of fuel. Dirt, varnish as well as a worn needle, seat or leaking float can cause it to not work properly.

You are correct, this is diaphragm type I have similar model s620.
Did you install gasket in the correct order : main body , diaphragm, gasket and cover?
Did you install main seat with grooves into carburetors casting or out?
