Remove the carburetor bowl and make sure the float valve is letting gas in when the floats are lowered and stopping when raised ( you may have to clean the needle valve), then use a small flat screwdriver to remove the valve ( brass piece ) that is inside the part that is in the middle of the floats ( the bolt that holds the bowl in place screws into it, it should drop straight down)and clean all the holes in it with carb cleaner and a piece of wire as well as the hole it came out of and your problem should be solved.
