Hey everyone,

I rebuilt the carbs on my 79 and when I turn the gas on, within seconds it's coming out the overflow. I tried tapping on the bowls with a rubber mallet, no luck. I put the original floats back in and same results. Any help diagnosing this issue would be wonderful.

thanks

What Murray said. And if that doesn't solve the problem look very closely at the float valve needles & seats. It only takes a tiny bit of dirt or varnish to keep the valve from sealing. Or a missing rubber tip on one of the needles.
