It`s quite possible the main body is warped, which could have caused the first throttle body not to activate due to the butterflies being stuck closed, and I`ve seen this problem once before. Another test you can do is strip the carb all the way down, place the main body over a bucket and fill the bowl with fuel and see how long it takes for the main wells to start dripping, the last Q-jet I got leaked so bad the idle wouldn`t adjust, they had already been epoxied and still leaked, I repeened them and recoated them with epoxy and solved the leak, this method also lets you see if there`s a crack or leak from another source.
