Welcome. The vent line you are referring to, is that the carb overflow (top nipple on the carb), or somewhere else? So the gas only comes out when adjusting the idle screw? Are you referring to part number 10 in this diagram as the idle screw? https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemp...31c/carburetor
All the idle screw does is advace or retard the throttle. Are you sure it's not leaking at times when the idle screw isn't being adjusted?
Did you replace the bowl gasket on the carb when you cleaned it? What about the float valve, was it replaced or not?
Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
Just a wild guess you meant gas came out under the bike out the vent/drain line? if so I'd suspect the float was stuck open.
idle mix and idle stop start positions diagram attached, you need a tachometer to dial the idle-mix to find the just-max-rpm position and then set the idle-stop for 1400rpm.
