What kind of fuel pump are you using? A Holley needle & seat can't take much over 7 psi before it gets overwhelmed and starts to flood. Also, how did you set the floats? All the lip service about taking out the sight plugs in the bowls and adjusting the float up until gas begins to dribble out is absolute b-s. The float is always too high that way. You take the bowl off, invert it, and set the top of the float just even or a little below the top bowl screw holes. I feel for you, man--this has to be driving you nuts! Good luck!
