I just took the SMI Quadrajet back off my truck's 4.3 V6 so I could fix the main wells. All I did was the same as I always do, remove the base plate and give each one a good smack with a hammer. Then I'll lay the carb on top of a bucket, fill the bowl with fuel then peek in to see if any fuel is dripping out. In every case I've did this thus far it's solved the problem. The SMI Quadrajet I have had the main wells epoxied but they still leaked so I used a wire brush to remove it then gave'em a smack with a hammer to seal them off.
