The yellow circle that you have is the bole vent. Your float is stuck open. If your float is not stuck, then you may have a hole in the float it's self. Take the float out and give it a shake, If it is the brass type. You should hear gas sloshing around inside. If so, it is time to change the float.

Did you check the dry float setting before you completed the reassembly? Had the carb sat for a while before it was installed, if this wasn't a re-build?

OK So What I did was put the needle seat bolt on but it wasnt grabbing the needle itself so everytime I tried to adjust, it would just spin the bolt and not the needle, fixed, fixed, and running nice
