Stuck, or improperly adjusted float.

May be time to rebuild the carb.

Thank you I just got iit going I pulled the float shook it a bit and blew some gas thru it while I manually raised and lowered floats and seams to work fine now. Someone just put suger in my tank and it must have been a lot because my flaps were glued shut fuel pump shot and floats stuck and I found at least a pound under the intake manifold and in it and I can smell it in the exhaust
