Sounds like you still have issues with the old carb, but it runs now. Float problems can be a pain in the butt sometimes.
I fought a flooding carb on a yamaha warrior all summer. My son rides it , so I only get part of the symptoms. There would be times when it would start and run for a few minutes and lean out for a few seconds. He didnt tell me about that part. The big issue was when the gas is turned on and gas would gush out of the overflow. It has check ball in the gas cap that must have got gummed up.
Everyone has heard, "loosen the gas cap if it acts like it isnt getting gas", the same thing can cause it to flood if the tank pressures up from a big change in temp too.

Word of advice to everyone about Gumout treated gasoline--- don't get it on your hands.... as it reeks after a dozen hand washes still and can ruin any good appetite. Aside from that I was very satisfied with the new carb. If it still works tomorrow and the next day I will be convinced 100% lol.

Anyway, thanks to everyone that helped me, and to Mr. M who sent me another carb. :)

Ya, except I have to revisit my fuel line. I have a short fuel line to the carb after my shutoff, but apparently, it will run for quite a while on that length of gasoline lol. So going to add a secondary shutoff right at the carb. Plan is to turn off the valve and run it out of fuel to stop the engine. Knowing that carb failure will cause engine flooding I do not want any gas in the carb unless It is loaded on the trailer (float bounce)
