    My carb is GUSHING fuel out the intake. As far as I can tell the float is not stuck. When I popped the bowl off, this fell out:

    Looks like a ball check?

    Yeah, after more digging around I figured out that is a kind of check for the accelerator pump. Not likely to be the cause of my problem, although I've been unable to verify if that spring is broken or supposed to look like that. Still havent figured out my fuel leak.

    How restrictive is the fuel return line on these vehicles normally? I had to blow pretty hard on mine to get air to move into the fuel tank... then it blew some right back out at me unless I took off the cap. Either way it doesnt seem to be flowing well.

    Apparently taking carb apart and putting it back together, and blowing through the fuel return, fixed that problem.

    Anybody think that the carb flooding could be from bad distributor cap, took mine off today and all the points where the rotor makes contact are corroded?

    Also when mine floods, I just pull fuel line off carb and plug with finger and turn the key till it starts burns gas in carb and then reconnect it and off it goes.

    HMMMMMMM! Looks like you have a unique situation. It runs fine after you get rid of the extra fuel in the carb. So your getting good spark, otherwise it wouldn't run after you dump the extra fuel. I would still replace the cap and rotor if their old, that's just me! A little die electric grease in there on the contact points wouldn't hurt keeping down extra moisture! I also think the extra fuel issue is something separate altogether! either an adjustment on the carb, worn jets, for some reason you had extra parts come from your carb. What did you do to remedy the carb. situation back then? Just thinking out loud, trying to help!
