Ford fe holley 4bbl carb problem

I installed a "rebuilt"? Holley 4160 1850 carb on my 390 ford engine.I changed the fuel filter & when i started it fuel came gushing out the secondary vent.Could this have been caused by dirt? .The floats were adjusted correctly by me.It caused a minor fire and im afraid the float bowls might now be warped.Any ideas what caused this?.Mike

Most likely the secondary float was stuck or mis-adjusted. Is this a short or center pivot?
