Carb overflow is caused by a float valve that is not seating. The valve and seat might be dirty or worn. The float might be leaky and is filling with fuel so the valve doesn't close. This will cause the fowling.

Charging problem might be a bad alternator or regulator or the battery is just old or a loose connection or all 4 or any combo thereof.

You really need a manual. But if you set the valves at 5 thousandths you'll probably be okay. 6 to be safe. Loose valves won't hurt.
