MAJOR NIPS

Got the float and the cab kit here locally (Roy Boys, Tigard , OR) and some great advice from the parts counter guy about removing the old jet and reseating the new one.
First time I ever played with the insides of a carb.
It now runs perfectly.
Thanks to all who helped with the diagnosis and pointing to the float.
Drained fuel out of the old float for about a half hour.
Sixteen bucks in parts, supported a local merchan, avoided a $ 75.00 labor bill and leared a new skill.
Thanks folks.

1) It's a Tecumseh. Looked it up on the sears parts site. http://www3.sears.com/
2) Your gas problem sounds a lot like a defective float in the carb. Part number 632019 which costs six bucks. The floats are noted for leaking, and then they don't float. And then the gas floods.
