You probably have something in the needle/seat or the floats are way off. JMO What carb is it you are working on ?
Go back and re-check the floats and make sure you got everything clean so that nothing is blocking the needle valve. JMO Simply re-check your work.
You should have verified where the vaccum leak was first IMHO.
