454C10 What kind of pump?

Should install an inline fuel pressure gage to see what is going on.

Is the fuel pressure too much without the return on the fuel pump? I am going to check the float levels tomorrow but i want to make sure it is not a problem that i am running a fuel pump without the return line since the stock pump has a return line on it. Running a return line is not an option since i have no spot on my gas tank for a return line.
Make sure the gas tank isn't under pressure from heating up w/a non vented gas cap on the tank.

F-BIRD'88 Idle fuel pressure 5 to 7psi. More is not better.

Flooding is caused by high ffuel pressure
defective dirty carb needle seats, high float adjustment
lack of a fuel filter.

hot carb and or hot fuel pump and fuel lines.

move fuel lines away from exhaust system.

restrict and or block the exhaust heat risers at the manifold gasket
install a holley carb heat shield (or make your own from sheet metal) the shield must extend under the carb bowls.
Install a Edelbrock wood carb spacer. ( divided type for a dual plane manifold)

Install a mech fuel pump heat shield gasket.

excessive fuel pressure is the usual cause.
More than 8psi is way too much. 5 to 7psi is just right for a holley.
