Where did you set the floats? Should be just to the point where it starts to dribble out the sight plug.

hi . I had the same problem. make sure the needle valves which shut off the fuel are not sticking and are spot on a little tap on the head of the adjuster nut will id if they are sticking as the fuel should stop coming out (no leaks in the float and is getting heavier? ) . too much fuel pressure ? tinniest bit of crap will allow the fuel to flow past .
