Question gas squirting from mikuni carb?

I had removed the carb from my 78 Arctic Cat Panther and cleaned it. I put it back on the snowmobile and it started fine, but there is fuel squirting from a hole near the top where the air intake attaches. How did I cause this and how can I fix? Thanks.

Smile gas squirting from mikuni carb

The gas coming out of the carb indicates the float level in the carb is to high.Take the carb off and remove the bottom bowl and on the float which contacts the needle valve .There is a tang which you can adjust up just slightly to close off the fuel supply sooner as this is what is causing too high a level and the gas is leaking.You should only need to raise the tang just a bit.Do you have floats sitting in the bowl or attached to the body of the carb?
