Someone mentioned dirt in the carburetor. Did you check?
Not just the float bowl. Some of us can't resist using a dab of
gasket shellac or silicone rubber when assembling a carburetor, just
to make sure it never leaks again. All it needs is a tiny bit to have
made its way to the bottom of the main jet where it can periodically
cause a blockage. Have you removed the main jet assembly and ensured
there is nothing to restrict flow into and up the jet?
All the best,
