I've had this exact issue on a couple '50's motors. Turned out to be the "O" ring between the upper and lower carb halves. Riser pipe I think I've heard some call it? I actually had one fail at the far end of a very long lake. Ended up making one from a section of fuel hose to get by.
Anyway, I know you've taken it apart already, but is there a chance you forgot to put it in in the first place? Maybe missing from the kit?
Hey Chris, if you're referring to the float chamber to carb body boss gasket witch is the thick o ring thick gasket that sits on top of the high speed nozzle in the middle of the lower half of carb, i did put that on. I made a few adjustments to the float, i'm now waiting for the tune up and ignition parts to come in tomorrow. Once i install all the parts i will give it another go and post the results, i also change the pressure tank gasket and hoses
