Time to rebuild the carb, fuel is going right through into your engine cylinders.

Best Answer Mark helpful

the motor couldn't possibly be 'still okay' with a wash of gasoline. Do a compression test to see if your goose is cooked.

check your vacuum line at fuel pressure mod. diafram may have split and giving a hardy gulp of fuel washing thru ring gaps, you will have a clean engine once corrected

85

I agree sounds like a float is sticking in the carb

either blow-by or the tpi is dumping fuel
