Holley issues!

Happy New Years everyone!!!! ok i finaly got the plug fouling prb figured out, now something eles....if i crank the car once a week it does great, but if i let it sit for a months time like here lately because its so cold outside, yesterday it was 70 degrees here, so i checked the plugs they looked great, so i took the air cleaner off, when it fired up gas shot out the back air horn and filled up the back of the carb, why would my carb be doing this, i took the needle and seat out blowed through it and put it back in and readjust the float level, did good from there....

Something got stuck in the rear needle seat assembly, or the float itself got stuck in the open position. Make sure you have a good fuel filter mounted just before the carb fuel inlet, and that your fuel pressure isnt too high.

Give your car a dose of Sea Foam in the gas tank and run it long enough to get the laced gas into the carb. Might help next time it sets for a month or more.
