The sluge that glued the floats to the bottom of the bowl may also have clogged some passages in the carb.

To check the float level, remove the float bowl and hold the carb upside down, with the carb bowl mating surface parallel to the ground. The floats should also be parallel to the ground. If not, bend the tang that presses on the valve and re-check.
