Small Engine Repair

I have an Old Homelite Generator model 180I62, WI-390 series 800448 (Wisconsin Engine). The carb has gas running out of the carb where the choke (butterfly is). And it won't start, could there be a blockage in the carb? I can't find any info online for this discontinued model.

could be some dirt between the needle and seat. take the carb bowl off, being careful not to drop or lose the needle, float or pivot rod, and spray it clean with carb cleaner. also spray some cleaner into the seat. when you put it back together, you may want to use a small amt. of starting fluid sprayed into the carb intake. Also pull out the spark plug and check to see if it is fouled with fuel or oil.
