I have a fuel pressure regulator and it's set at 4.5 psi.

Sitting on level ground, I started the engine and warmed it up to do some other things.

After shutting it off and checking it a little bit later, I see the booster in the secondary has some residual fuel around it, but also see fuel around the top of the vent. Not much, but it's there.

The primary bores have a lot as well as fuel around the front vent also.

I am confused.

Edited to add:

It just dawned on me that I have a nice digital infrared thermometer and then checked the temp of the float bowls.

Front was about 112 and the rear was at 118 give or take a few degrees. The engine has been off with the hood open for at least 20 minutes, so that kind of tells me that I probably have a percolating issue and need an insulator.
