yes the inlet needle is just inboard of the fuel line. The float closes it when the level of fuel forces it up(hopefully). Like I said if the problem just came on with no work on the carb, it is probably just some debri on the needle, a little rubber tipped thing that hangs on the float with a little wire to let it hang free. A small speck of anything will hold it off the seat, and let the fuel overflow. There is a small pin holding the float, it needs to be drifted "lightly" out,in only one direction, (there is a small arrow cast into one of the poles holding the pin, drift that way. Fabricate a small punch (smaller than the pin) and tap it out enough to remove the needle and float.Be carefull you don'tbreak off one of the poles!!! Examine the needle tip and the seat, looking for a damaged tip or anything that would keep it from sealing. The needle's need to be replaced when the rubber starts rotting. Your manual tells how to adjust the float,-like hold the carb body on a 17 degree angle and the float should be ~3/32" from the float bowl flange on carbbody. basically you just need to have the float let in enough gas to run and shut off before it reaches the top of float bowl, so therm is a little lee-way on the adjustment. Hope this will help.
