    Most likley the power valve is leaking down. Or if you have one blocked the gasket is leaking, you won't be able to see it as it is under the carb plate.

    CARB PROBLEM

    SET CARB ON STAND FILLED BOWLS
    NOTICED FUEL COMING OUT OF SECONDARY NOZZEL ABOVE
    BUTTERFLYS
    WOULD THAT MEAN WE HAVE A PORUS METERING BLOCK
    ANY SUGGESTIONS ?????????????????????????????????????????//

    ALSO DOES ANYONE REALLY KNOW WHAT CHUCK N DOES TO THESE CARBS
    DOES HE TOUCH THE MAIN BODY ANY ---BESIDES MACHINING TOP OF CARB
    THINKING OF PUTTING NEW M BLOCKS ON MAKE BACK TO ORIGINAL
    GRASPING FOR ANYTHING

    THANKS EVERYONE

    I would try this idea first...all it will cost you is a few minutes and a new gasket...can't hurt anything.

    It means you need to send the carb back and have the guy fix it.

    CARB PROBLEM

    just a few notes about chuck
    we sent this cark to him ran 8.97 to 9.09
    got it back $600 plus shipping----we live way north
    it ran 9.20 ran good and consistant----wheres my 2 tenths
    also had to take jet extensions from front and put in rear
    his answer --- o well staff
    the time we send back and for him to fix if he can or does i can buy a new dom for $900
    also this week 2 other fellows which have bought from him complete carbs
    are not working right whats with that---maybe we just get leftovers
    will probably send back but will do some more testing

    anyone want to buy this carb send me the money its yours
