Sounds like you need to buy a new fuel petcock & some heavy clutch springs.

If you have a photobucket or flicker account you can post your pictures there then come back here & post a link to your pictures.

Sounds like the gas line is a little to big to fit on the petcock & it looks like the fuel is coming out of the airfilter.
Your float forks might be stuck & is flooding your carb ?

Pictures will help.

Re: carb problem

the float in your carb may be stuck down, not shutting the gas off when the bowl gets full
the carb needs cleaning
what springs on clutch?
the 4 big ones in the case?

Re: carb problem

Time to get a free account at somewhere that hosts images, like PhotoBucket, Flickr, or ImageShack. Right now, trying to figure out your problem just by saying, "I have a pocketbike, how do I fix it?" without pictures to at least see what engine we're dealing with is like saying, "I saw a woman shopping at Walmart, do you know her?" Since there are about a hundred different styles of pocketbikes and engines, we could be here for quite a long time just trying to figure out what your bike and engine looks like .....

Go to PhotoBucket, sign up for a free account, upload some pictures of the bike - engine and full side shots - then copy and paste the links here, please. Pictures help us identify the bike more easily, and we can give you more specific information on how to fix it.

Dear haters: Please be patient. I have so much more for you to be annoyed about.

Re: carb problem

Try bending the float fork down about 1/8 of an inch & your problem should be solved.
