Reads like float level set alittle high, or fuel pressure too high lifting needle off seat, maybe.

Gotta agree with Everett. Sounds like the float level is to high. When I do a rebuild, I always set the float 1/16 inch lower than the instructions say to. I learned the hard way that it always seemed that the float was high and I know I set the float to specs. Never had a problem since. I also use a new float if the original was a plastic float and the carb was more than 5 years old. For some reason, old floats just seem to sink after a few days in the new carb.
