    Got the new needles installed and now notice the gasket is wet between the intake and the carb spacer.
    You guys run a gasket between the manifold, spacer, and carb?
    I may just remove the spacer altogether.

      Every joint should have a gasket. So if you use a spacer you should run two gaskets.

        I'm currently running askets on both surfaces,but notice seepage after the car sits over night.
        I removed the carb and am installing the smaller 97 off road seats with new gaskets and I'll see what happens.
        I might try running without the spacer..maybe its a defective piece.
        Anyone know the difference between the Holley rebuild kits.
        The renew kit pretty much just looks like a gasket set.
        Thanks.

            I'd be looking into the seepage problem too. It sounds like the carb is bleeding from somewhere after the engine is shut down. If gas is seeping out, that means air could be getting in while running. Trying to tune a carb with a vacuum leak makes it almost impossible.

              vacuum leak would show up ond the gauge, Im guessing the rich condition is leaving fuel somewhere inthe carb and leaking over night...maybe the floats are my problem...seems cheaper to just buy a new carb.

                Try spraying around the carb while its running, if you hear a difference in idle you found your leak

                  I doubt you would see it unless you had a very accurate gauge or if you had a base reading on that engine with a brand new carb with no known leaks

                    Those were my thoughts too Graeme. As for fuel left over in the carb, where? The fuel would be in the bowls, and maybe a very slight amount in the legs to the squirters. Pretty much shouldn't be a large amount left anywhere other than the bowls. And again, if its leaking from there, then you got vacuum leaks as well.
