Shut the fuel valve off while it is running, then when it tries to stall choke it hard and keep it running as long as possible. With any luck it will suck the piece of varnish or dirt outta the needle/seat assy and then when you open the valve again it wont flood.. If it still does, time to drop the fuel bowl..

Very common problem, no matter where you bought it..

I agree..stuck float/needle seat...The choke trick might do it.BUT I would just pull the bowl and see what is going on it there..It won't be hard.

I'm sure these guys are run first and then they drain them.You might have gotten ahold of a old unit.This stuff happens.
