A lot of time this can be caused be a worn needle valve, that's what regulates the flow of fuel into the float bowl. The tip can become worn or clogged with debris which doesn't allow the valve to close properly. If you say the timing and spark is right then the needle and seat would be my first thought. Especially if it has been sitting a long time. Maybe the float itself is water-logged.

Rebuilding that carb should not be that complicated, and if you're up to it, have at it.
