Holley 4160 (3310-S) continuing issues

Here is INSTALLATION, TUNING, AND ADJUSTMENT Manual from Holley. Some solutions for fuel leaks after the engine is shutdown. This is usually caused by percolation. This is when the engine is shut off and the engine temperature rises it causes the fuel to boil in the bowl and leak out of the boosters. There are a couple of things you can do to cure this one is make sure the fuel level is not too high. You can also lower the fuel level about 1/8" below the sight plug hole and this will cure it sometimes. The heat from the engine will rise into the carburetor sometimes and will cause the fuel to boil. Installing a phenolic heat spacer between the carburetor and the intake or a heat shield can cure this. These parts will prevent heat from getting to the carburetor and boiling the fuel. To fix your choke you can replace the manual choke with this electric choke conversion kit.Holley Performance Products Choke Conversion Kit*45-223.
