Sounds like gas overflowing through the carb and into the air supply tube. Could be due to carb float level arm too high which otherwise temporarily shuts off the gas supply when the tractor is running so the tractor gets only the gas it needs to run. If thats the case it requires adjustment. Maybe start by a search through the archives in this forum using search words of how to adjust a TO 20 float level Also if the tractor is not being used it's best practice to physically shut off the gas at the valve or gate near the tank, that makes sure no gas gets to the carb when your not using the tractor. Another option is that there might be some foreign material in the carb causing the float to jam that way, suggest remove the carb bowl, its easy enough to remove the carb then the bowl and clean the lot and check the arm for free movement. So it might be any of several causes.

Thanks. At present is will not start, just fills with fuel. I did have the fuel shut off and wonder if some debris simply pushed down into the carb. Anyway, I will check the floats and see what I find.
