The floats are good, ive set them many times, the needle and seat is brand new. if i get any fuel pressure it sprays from the metering blocks. what is going on???
Holley's commonly come with warped and or pin holed castings, some just can't be sealed up. The casting aren't made in America, but even 40 years ago when they were, this was an occasional problem.
