Fuel out air intake

Putting things back together after several months doing a valve job. When I opened the fuel line gas began leaking around the air intake hose. I haven't done any work on the carb but am assuming the float is stuck allowing the bowl to overfill? Appreciate some advice.

The carb leaks on my tractor sometimes, but the tractor runs great,
So I just be sure to cutoff the fuel each time I stop the tractor for any length of time, yes it can be a pain, but rebuilding the carb is no guarantee you will stop the carb from leaking and tractor might not run as well, as it does now,

Also I added an metal inline fuel filter between the cut off and carburetor, that stopped more of my fuel related problems then anything else I have done,

However my carb does not leak fuel as soon as I open the fuel cutoff, that problem must be fixed,

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeSometimes, a sharp wrap to carb with a wood or plastic tool handle will free it up & stop that flow. Otherwise remove bowl to access needle/seat/float. If real careful you can save gasket for re-use.

I would agree, float stuck or junk in needle / seat.

Am I going to need to disassemble the carb completely or after fuel sits do floats become lubricated and start working. I don't have a carb rebuild kit on hand.
