The needle and seat of the regulator is leaking in the carburetor. It could be trash and it could be a old stiff metering valve rubber diaphragm.

You need the more complete carb repair kit and to clean out and repair your carburetor.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
