Who woulda thunk it
Over the weekend I fired up the scout and poured a little gas down the carb some spashed on the top plate of the carb(no biggie) it fired right up but back fired a bit outta the carb igniting the little bit of gas on top. It burned for about 10-15 seconds then I blew it out(small fire) it was runnin fine but after a minute the vent tube on top of the carb started spewin gas and of course flooded the engine.
It runs great for the first minute before this happens so why is it doing this. I have an idea why I'm just looking for some other ideas as to why and the fuel pump is mechanical and its a 2 barrel carb

sounds like a sticky needle and seat on the float to me bud, give the carb some little love taps on the float bowl near where the fuel line goes in sometimes that will free it up if not will have to come apart and get cleaned out.

My old 66 ford did the same thing a few times. pull the floats, wash out the needle seat, and empty any sediment in the bowl, put it back together and it will probably be fine. its an old rig that has sat for a long time, this isn't a surprise.

What do you need to make that rig rite ? I've got soooo much shit for SII its sick! If you want that 4bbl man. I'll get it to richmond one day soon. You'll need a holley 500-600 for it, I dont have a complete one as the flapper's under my BBQ mixer. and youll need to move your throttle cable fwd.
