67 Camaro 327 2 Barrel Mixture Screws

Hi Guys, after 9 months in the shop. I received my 67 RS convertible back. Rebuilt original engine and heads, new Hurst Shifter, new brakes, new clutch, new Gardner dual exhaust, etc, etc.. She runs awesome. Had an issue last night with stop and go traffic on south street in Philly. The engine began to buck and backfire after 20 minutes in traffic. I then got on the open road and she was fine. I did have the 2 barrel carb rebuilt. Did notice today under the mixture screws a very small of gas was leaking and turned my newly painted manifold black. My mechanic is on vacation till October. Any suggestions? Thx Tom

There may have been some trash gotten between the needle & seat and carb could have flooded.
Might change the fuel filter, 9/16 wrench and a 1 inch wrench, new filter.

Re: 67 Camaro 327 2 Barrel Mixture Screws

Carburetor issue solved. The guy who rebuilt my carb the first time did some shoddy work. I sent it to a guy in Texas who bench tested it and corrected the issues. I had the car out last weekend, it runs like a champ again with no issues. I also did a hole shot and had the tac over 5000 rpms with no hesitation. Check out this youtube video of my carb and the final bench test. https://youtu.be/fr6_txZ3MBk

Here is the first video when Chuck received the carb, then did the initial bench test. https://youtu.be/qQqXwuzRA5s
