Default HELP: engine floods (mounted inverted)

OS 61FX mounted inverted. Runs well first time of the day, then gets progressively worse until it won't start.
Draining fuel out of cylinder head. The only thing I can think of that is wrong is that the fuel tank is slightly above the level of the carb (in vert axis).

Please help....

You already know the solution 103. Lower the tank to 1/4 inch below the carb and prime sparingly. Your problems should go away.

If you can't lower the tank. Put a loop in the line between the carb and tank. This will stop the siphone effect.

No Dave, the loop will not stop the siphoning. If it would a siphon wouldn't work. Just think about it for a minute.
