I'm getting sick of this! I put a new regulator new gauge and rebuilt the carb and its still pushing fuel past the floats and flooding the carb. I have the pressure set to 5lbs anyone have any suggestions.

Turn it down to around 3.5 lbs to see if it stops it.

Are you certain the regulator is only allowing 5lbs? sounds like it may be bad!.. I'd keep turning it down as 88 said just to see if it stops.

Yes I will turn it down. This the second regulator and 3rd gauge. The last time it filled the cylinders with fuel and hydrolocked it. Its a stock fuel tank so I'm thinking about looping the fuel line back to itself seems there's no place for a return in the tank.

Cranked it down to 3.5 labs before it quite pushing past floats. I hope this is the fix, but now wonder if pressure is to low when driving. Only one way to find out.

I don't think that pump would need a return line. But you never know.

So far everythings holding but for some reason its still running like its getting to much fuel. It probably wouldn't hurt to change plugs and still have some tuning to do

If you can.try your carb on a buddy's car to see if it floods out?if not it's a fuel system problem.
