If your bowl drain has a tube that you can connect a length of clear tubing, try curving that tubing up in a U shape (no kinks), then open the drain and fuel valve. The level should stop a short distance below the bowl seat, about the distance as the float level is set mechanically. If it fills much higher than that, the float may not actually float. If it is hollow brass, there could be a small leak filling it with fuel; if it is plastic and foam, it could be soaking up fuel. Either way, replacement may be the better option, if you can find them.

If that seems alright, try removing the bowl and check to see if the jets are still in place; sometimes they back out and fall in the bowl.
