Default Need help adjusting my vegas clone carb.

Ive had the engine running and it runs pretty good from what I can see, BUT...I only ran it with a header on it and at 1 point I had gas popping out the carb and gas running out the drain hole where the carb and spacer come together ( I can post pics if you dont know what I'm talking about). I tried playing with the air/fuel mixture screw but I didn't want it to run long with these conditions. Is there a specific procedure on adjusting the carb? I feel like I'm getting way too much fuel!
oh and which way do you turn the screw to lean it out?
As always thanks again for any help! Rich

Did you just drop the bowl and un-stick it?

I did, and haven't had any issues since. It wasn't even stuck when I opened it up but when I put it back together it stopped having that problem. So I am guessing it was stuck but that's what will happen with a stuck float.

KillerCC,

Do you have a return in the fuel feed to the carb?

This is a common problem when overrunning the carb if there is no fuel return.

No I don't Geoff. Do I just put a "t" in the fuel line and run the extra line back to the tank? And since the tank isn't set up for a return, gotta clue on how I do that?

Wow, I missed that one. I just assumed you had already put the return T in, sorry. That'll definitely solve your problem!!!!!

Azzi, do you have a good pic of how your fuel lines are run and your connection to the tank?

Killer, look at my thread about the conversion swap. Easy Peasy to do, and don't worry about putting the hole in the top of your tank. I used scrap copper tubing with some rubber grommets.
