1966 289 with FLOODING Holley Street Avenger

Good Morning, back to work! I recently bought a 66 coupe with a Holley Street Avenger that was idling very high. I'm new to all this, by no means a mechanic, and know next to nothing about carbs. I finally realized the choke was not connected to a good 12V source and the car was always on choke. The car ran fine for about a day and now it floods within minutes of starting. I've pulled the needle valve assembly and hit it with some cleaner, but it was no help. When I say it floods, withing minutes I've got gas coming out of the top of the carb. What could be causing this?

it sounds like the floats are still to high. try adjusting them down some more.
sometimes they do go down that far. if you take the floats out you can adjust the tab that the needle rides on. :bigthumbsup
