Minor Flooding on Stock 350

My 69 has the original 350 with a stock 2 BBL that was just freshly rebuilt by Holley.

After the engine reaches operating temperature and I turn it off....It is hard to start as it seems as it floods out slightly.

It does start....but It takes some serious cranking w/ the gas pedal floored.

Other than that the car runs great..

Any suggestions would be appreciated!


Thanks, Dan

Re: Minor Flooding on Stock 350

hmmm maybe too much line pressure causing the float seat to cause fuel to seep?
or bad float adjustment

Re: Minor Flooding on Stock 350

Does it have a choke? If not, perhaps the mixture is too rich to compensate for the choke on a cold start and it's too rich for a hot start.

Check for dirt in the float valve and reset the float level

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
