There is an o-ring on the seat part but it wouldn’t have fallen off. Probably need to take the carb apart again. Could be just something went through and is holding the needle open

I don't think so. Looking at the parts diagram, there is a "packing" that goes in there. Generally that is an o-ring that goes around the seat part and seals it to the bore. But if there isn't a groove around the outside of the seat for the o-ring, then it would go under the seat and could have fallen out. Take a look at the parts diagram here and see what you have. Could be the float set too low or not floating.

You should be able to find a used one on Ebay or Powersportsnation.com. Both are good places for used parts.

If you have the original carb, the float needle seat screwed into the carb body and was sealed with a paper or aluminum washer - I can't imagine where you put an o-ring - the only o-ring in the entire carb was as a seal for the main jet quick access cap on the bottom of the float bowl
