Carb Flooding

Hi Guys and Gals, I just finished up on this motor which is a crate 350. I started the car and it ran fine for about 8 miles and it shut down. I went to start it up and the gas started pumping up thru the hole in front of the choke plate. This has a holley 600 cfm carb and when I bought it it was to be a new one!!!. The fuel pump is stock. Any help out there????. Thanks Don

are your floats set correctly? sounds like you have too much fuel pressure. is it a stock mechanical or electrical pump?

I had a simular problem .. what happend was a metering plate screw backed out and held the float down
Real easy to take a look inside ..

But as said above check the float level in the normal fashion first If no luck
pull the bowl off and take a peep.

Do you have a good fuel filter just before the carb? If not you got some trash in the needle and seat.

carb

Probably some debris in the needle and seat. remove it from the bowl and clean it out with compressed air, or some carb cleaner..

Do you have a filter before the carb??? If not you need one..

Also, get that oil out of there right away... Fuel washed oil is extreamly hard on a new engine...
