flooded lawn tractor carburetor?

hey. my bolens lawn tractor has been sitting up all winter. i started it a few weeks ago and it ran fine for a while. when i cut it off to take a break, all the gas leaked out of the carb. i added gas and tried starting it and it turned once but did not start. it sounded like it was choking for air. i took the bowl off, pushed the needle up and down (felt fine) and the float seemed to move freely. any suggestions?

First check to see if your throttle cable has frayed or become disconnected and isn't moving the carburator butterfly. If the cable is moving the butterfly open and closed, then go to the next step.

Check the needle seat. If it has a tiny indentation or groove, it lets gas flow past the needle when it is in the closed postion.

If that is o.k., then the needle is sticking and both the seat and needle should be replaced.
