quadrajet flooding?

i have an 84 chevy truck with a 305 4bl. with electric choke, all original. it runs very rich and leaks fuel out where the accelerator pump is. what inside the carb could i do to fix this? and ive already checked the fuel pressure, it is at 6psi. and the electric choke is working fine also.

Trash in the needle/seat or a bad needle/seat, rebuild is in order.

quadrajet flooding?

and don't forget the filter .
but hay , you said pressure reading was what 6 , with it flooding , your not getting true reading , it may be higher blowing needle off seat flooding .
but i opt for trash or needle worn from high dollar gas .

I agree, trash in the needle/seat or worn needle/seat, or excessive fuel pressure. The float could be bad, filling up with fuel and not floating, preventing the needle from seating to close off the fuel supply.
