What did you find? I am having the exact same issue. No one can answer. And
instead of a carb rebuild kit, I bought a brand new one. New float, needle and
seat, etc! I adjusted the float level at least a dozen times by now. Just like
you say, it works fine without the bowl attached. Secondly I bought ANOTHER new
carb from amazon for $15 thinking I just had bad luck with the previous new one.
Guess what, it does the same thing.
worst case scenario is just keep on searching
on ebay and find one on there for cheap. If you
do and it solves your problem for the moment
then your in business. Keep the old one as a
spare for those sneaky blizzards when all hell

Hi slip I have a suggestion. There could be rust or dirt in the gas. If
you get rust in the inlet it will flood it. Also a rotten fuel line
will leach bits of rubber into the carb causing flooding. It could also
be possible you put the neoprene seat in upside down. The side with the
little groove all the way around it goes in first. Good luck.
