Carb troubles

Good morning yall. Today im having carb troubles on my 02 500 just the same as i did for the past couple days. Ive fixed the float sticking problem. Now im just having trouble with it flooding. I adjusted the pilot screw 2 turns out. It just floods and backfires every now and then. Any help is appreciated. Im sorry for posting so much. Im just very desperate to get this 4 wheeler running. Thanks in advance

I can see gas coming out of the carb. I messed with the screw and got it to run with choke. Im so sorry for my ignorance. Im new to the mechanic world. Last night when i worked on it i pulled the spark plug and it was black and wet
