Re: Carb gas pouring out of hole on top front of carb
Sounds like the float has absorbed gasoline and can't ftoat anymore. This causes the fuel to not be shut off when float bowl is full causing the carb to flood. You will have to buy a carb kit and a float and rebuild the carb. Hope this helps.

The mixture screws are at the bottom front of the 2 front barrels. They poke into the barrels from outside the carb.
Butterfly usually refers top the throttle plates that open and close the barrels, but if you have a quadrajet, they may also refer to the upper plates on the back 2 barrels that only open when the throttle is wide open.
The float level is the distance of the top of the float when the float valve is closed. As gas flows into the bowl thru the float valve, the float rises and eventually closes when the proper float level is reached by the gas.
Any time a car sits for a long period of time you should completely drain the gas tank. The gas is more then likely stale. Try pouring a little new gas into the carb or use starting fluid. If it starts you have found your problem and will more then likely have to drain and clean the tank and replace the fuel filter.
If it does not start with the new gas, it is either a compression or timing issue. If you have spark at the plugs, and GOOD fuel in the carb and it still wont start I would check the timing. If the timing is on, check compression. If the engine sat to long with no oil in the cylinders they can build up condensation and rust. Then when you try to start it with the rust in the cylinders it can destroy the rings and cause compression loss.
If you are like me You only want someone to Answer this that has been there. The Carb needs Adjustment. One barrels are Notorius for loosing Adjustment, Especially since it is the Original. Drop me an E-Mail and I will send you Pics of MY Babies!!!! MrScary6661313@aol.com
check the fuel pump, maybe it is not working. if you put a new accelerator pump, I wonder if it's same as the fuel pump. if so, maybe you need to rebuild your carb, clean the small fuel line in the carb, something block there.
