Mower leaked gas, then came out the air breather hose
Removed carb float bowl bolt from bottom of float bowl. Then push float pin to one side and grab with needle nose pliers, and pull out, keeping other hand under float to catch, with the needle. Take needle and place on new float, being careful not to drop, and line up hole on float and needle into the seat, and push pin back in place. this was the first time I did this repair and after looking at some parts diagrams, I got the basic idea of where parts went. it was kinda hard to get the needle into the seat, but I didn't want to take the carb off as I didn't want to mess with the springs.

Gasoline was leaking from the carburetor.
Loosened carburetor mounting bolts, disconnected throttle cable, and removed carburetor from the mower. Placed carburetor in vise (with wood blocks to protect gasket mating surfaces), and loosened float bowl mounting bolt. I used a pair of small pliers to remove the pin for the float, then, taking care to maintain the position of the needle, removed and replaced the float. Finally, replaced the gasket, taking care to make sure it was positioned correctly, re-positioned the bowl, and tightened the bolt.
