Yup! You might see a little fuel dripping inside. If you don't see some have someone shut the motor off for you while you look inside. If a little mist of vapour appears then you know it's flooding a bit.
Try the hose squeeze or tapping by the inlet too.
The needle/seat is what controls the amount of fuel going into the carb bowl. It sometimes doesn't take much of a piece of junk to keep the fuel from getting past the needle.
Look on that last link I gave you. You'll see the needle/seat in a pic in there.
