I had a similar problem.

What was happening to my Amal was the float bowl gasket had indented where the float rod is, allowing the rod to float upwards just a bit, thus unseating the float needle and allowing gas to flow.

There is an inexpensive Amal rebuild kit that includes the gasket, replacement float needle, and other gaskets. I had the same problem and had to ride 50 miles home using my petcock valve to control the fuel flow. No fun.

By replacing the floatbowl gasket with a new one and replacing the float needles with a brass replacement my problem was fixed.
