Doesn't the lit you have for rebuilding the carb have instructions???? Most kits will tell you in the instructions what the setting should be to start with. That said as per what the other guy said. As for an in line filter most of the time those cause way more problems then they ever fix

Befre you open the carb back up try this. Remove the carb drain plug and check for a good steady flow if gas for a few minutes. Catch the gas to look for dirt/rust etc. If you do not have a good steady flow for say 3-5 minutes work your way back to the tank to find where it is clogged

Float set wrong or the needle sticking in the seat. If it is a rubber tipped needle seat then it should also have a spring clip that hooks to the float so it can not stick. Cheap kits will have the rubber tipped needle seat but not the spring

No clip means sticking needle seat and that gives you problems like you have now
