Change the spark plug. It sounds like it got fouled with wet gas. The float should be set as follows: Remove the carb, take off the bowl, turn the carb upside down. The float should be paralell to the carburetor. If it needs adjustment, bend the tab that holds the needle up or down, a little at a time, as needed. Unless this is the newer type carb with the plastic float. Then you cannot adjust it.
