just fixed this problem on a popo scrambler that was leaking gas like this so bad it filled the crank case through the intake sitting overnight..
took the carb apart, and I found that the brass fitting(needle seat) that the float needle goes into is replaceable, and there is an oring around it, it was rotted and even when the float was up, gas was still leaking past the system that was supposed to stop the gas...
replaced the oring and all is good.
also had to chainge the oil a few times too, but the crank case is nice and clean now!
