I took the carb back apart. I measured the float. It was dead on. I checked the needle. It was fine.
I should mention that the man I bought the car from had had the carb rebuilt.
I drive this Firebird every week.

I reinstalled the carb. I started it up. It was running fine. I cut the choke with tap of the peddle. The RPM's didn't drop to 400 so I was thinking I fixed the vaccum leak. I was patting myself on the back and then gas started coming out the top again.

I am thinking that there is something obstructing the needle from being able to seat correctly. I am having a heck of time trying to get the fuel filter thing to come off.
