Have had a 262 for a couple of years - always ran fine...  until a couple of weeks ago - starts fine but runs very rich and fuel has come out of the overflow/vent line at left front of the engine.  Air cleaner and Spark plug are new - kind of baffling!

 

Any ideas?

 

Thx

Has your oil level gone up?  May have a bad float or more probable needle valve is stuck or has dirt holding it open.  Welcome to the GTtalk.

As said above, sounds like you may need to have the carb cleaned / serviced.
