What causes fuel to seep from the squirters after the engine is turned off?
Checked float levels thinking they are too high but they were ok.Maybe the needle and seat? Any suggestions???

Ya know, the carb on my car does the same thing....it's a Quick Fuel though. I've always wondered why it did it....

Kevin, It could be the pins under the squirters are missing. Also the fuel might be percolating, do you have any type of heat shield under the carb?

The new float bowls with the red rubber check valve in the pump cavity have no provision to allow fuel vapor to escape back into the bowl when engine heat percolates the fuel. The original Holley design with the check ball retained by the little strap allows the vapor to vent when the ball is not forced closed by the use of the pump.

Drill a .024” hole from the diaphragm cavity up into the bowl. There is a little dimple for a drill starter. You will need to step up the shooter size and maybe the pump cam to make up for the amount lost back into the bowl.
