Holley Carb Leaking on 67' Camaro BB PLEASE HELP

Hey guys our 67' camaro with a 454/4bbl holley randomly started leaking out of a bizarre area. See the picture, where it's circled; this is where it is leaking after about 30 seconds of run time.

It seems to be around the 5 brass plugs in the carb? I quickly took it apart and the gaskets seem OK

Once it starts leaking out it eventually kills the motor. What could this be?

Thanks guys!

1967 RS/SS--BB-4spd.

Justin

Re: Holley Carb Leaking on 67' Camaro BB PLEASE HELP

looks like a metering block gasket or one of the brass plugs is leaking

Restake the plugs and use JB weld or replace metering block.

Are you sure its not coming out of the vent tube? Is your float level set correctly? Just checkin'... ;-)

Check to make sure the blocks are not warped i had this happen to me before, if you overtighten the fuel bowl screws it can happen

Could it be the float sticking?

Thanks for the help guys. We are going to fool around with it later tonight. Are the brass plugs pressure fit? How do you know how
hard" to knock them in?

Thanks again
