Post Chevy flooding problem.

Hi, I have a 73 chevy sb 400v8 4bolt 4barrel, in a 82 Suburban. My problem is only when you punch it, it gets going just fine and then the carb floods out some times. It doesnt do it under normal driving conditions. Does any one know if it would be a carb problem, or maybe a weak coil or something? I also noticed the gas sometimes runs onto the manifold out of the carb when it floods. If anyone can help I would be greatful.

Float might be getting stuck, careful with that, I've a Camaro catch fire like that, flooded and stalled float stuck, he held gas pedal to the floor, pumped gas all over his manifold and bam his 406 was on fire.
