I HAD one of those! Bought from the owner who had stored it for 3 years. It did the same thing. Turned out the float in the carb. was bad and was not shutting off the fuel flow allowing the carb bowl to overflow. Other possibilities are the rubber fuel line running from the mechanical fuel pump to the carb itself. I will add that once that was fixed, I discovered the gas tank itself was also leaking requiring me to drop and reseal it. If it did not leak when started in 99', it's doubtful the fuel filter managed to "missinstall" itself while it was sitting. The STOCK fuel filters are INSIDE a round metal cylinder that is screwed right to the carb itself.
