Default extremely loose high speed needle

Your O-Rings are bad. You can order them and just take the carb apart to fix it. I recommend getting O-Rings for the entire thing, because if one is bad, the others are probably getting there. Thread Lock works as a quick fix, just don't put a ton on.

In the time you are waiting for the O-ring you can cut of a snall piece of a fuelhose to use as an O-ring.
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.
