Mule3000 carburetor vent tube sucking air

I have a 3000 that is missing on one cylinder. It had dirt dobber in the vent(over flow) when I clean this out I noticed it was sucking air while running like a vacuum hose. I cleaned the jets put it back on and the same. It starts but will not idle. Before I cleared the overflow tube it would idle but flood one cylinder. It ran in the front cylinder for a while. Then it start running on the back and missing on the front.

Probably got a leaky carb mounting gasket or bowl gasket and/or the cover gasket. There shouldn't be any air movement that could be felt from the vent tube but it does have to be clear/clean.
