One thing I do to them all is when I have the carb stripped all the way down I take the main body, place it over a bucket and fill the fuel bowl and watch for leaks. Quadrajets are notorious leakers around the main wells. Many epoxy them and everytime I`ve did it and had it done even by guys who do it for a living like Sean Murphy, they still leaked. The solution is to flip the body over and restake the main wells with a small punch and a hammer, recheck for leaks and that`s it. It`s worked every time for me.
