My recently rebuilt 4 Jet Rochester ( circa 1965) on my 283 sbc is flooding after I drive on the highway. I just installed this today,set my timing at 12* initial,48* full in @ 3000 rpm,adjusted the mixture screws for max. vacuum (17 psg).The first time I got off the highway it was idling rough at stop in gear and the idle was way down. I set the idle faster,then went about modifying my kickdown cable bracket and went out for a test drive.Got off the highway and it stalled at the lights and wouldn't start.Towed it home and got it running once for a short time and stalled.We noticed gas chugging out of the 2 brass tubes above the primaries.

???????????? Anyone familiar with this vintage piece of equipment??

They operate the same as any carb, and it`s either, Float too high, needle stuck open, fuel pressure too high (they don`t like over 5 psi) Missing rubber piece on the end of the needle, trash in the needle and seat, possible hole in the float. If you don`t have a fuel pressure gauge, get one, believe me, it`s no use trying to guess it.
