The floats are stuck open. You may be able to tap on the side of the carb to free them, but may have to take the top/bowls off to clean them up.

Yep, what 70fastcat said. Move it out side to try starting it next also. Better cold and wet then to hot and no garage.

Take it off turn it upside down and give it a good shake....or 3. That's a classic problem when they sit for awhile.
