    sounds like the float is hanging up on time to clean the carb

    I was wondering if it could be the power valve. When I first installed it it was hooked up on fuel pump. Now I have a free flow line on it. I had someone helping me yesterday we took it apart checked for trash everything looked clean. Power valve spring looks very strong could that be the problem.

    fuel pumps are only a couple 4 psi anyway..

    if it's flooding out.. NEEDING a fuel pump AIN'T yer problem.

    I'd check flaot and needle for junk or hanging..
