1953 M38A1 jeep carb

Ok the carb on my 1953 M38A1 jeep went out and it started to not hold any gas at all so its dumping the gas into the combuston chamber. : Can anyone help or give a price?

Sounds like a needle/seat problem. Might try tapping on the cover above the inlet. If this doesn't work, pull the lid and clean the inlet. Worse case you can get a rebuild kit and replace it(might want to do the rest of the carb as well).
