Ronnie -- Be sure you have a "real" needle and seat, not the Grose-Jet setup using steel balls.
Make sure the float is OK. Not holed & filling with fuel. It would sink & cause your problem and a bad needle/seat would also.
Heat a pan of water. When the water FIRST STARTS TO BOIL, put a needle nose vice grip pliers on the hinge and dunk the float in the water. If you have a leak in the float bubbles will poor out like an inner tube with a hole. I check all floats before installing them. I find about 20% or better have holes.
.... and if you see bubbles, turn the float so that the hole is at the bottom. That will force out any fuel inside. Let it cool and then repeat until only bubbles emerge when the hole is at the bottom. Finally, (assuming it's a brass float!) clean the float around the hole and add a quick blob of solder to seal. Re-check in hot water.
Float is ok I think it is the needle and seat leaking by are they specific to this Kingston carb if so where is best place to get a set from. It is the regular type needle seat
Thanks guys guess ill order one
