Overflowing during priming is somewhat normal. You probably don't have to push the button that many times. Spitting out while running it should not be doing. That almost sounds like timing.

Does it leak out when not running? That would indicate a bad float or needle/seat.

No it does not leak out when not running so how would I go about the timing

I'd first try adjusting the main jet by turning the screw. Could be way out of adjustment, if it's an older carb that has the adjustment.

I don't know if it has it I know it has an idle mixing screw and a high idle screw
