    Unhappy Excessive fuel in bowl area when warm, right after initial acceleration, flood stalls

    After acceleration, it seems to flood then stalls out. I have a Holley 80511-1 that seems to be blowing fuel out the bowl area after acceleration from a stop when the engine is warm. I checked float levels and idle mixture screws but can't seem to figure this one out. It all worked fine before I had the vehicle dyno'd but hasn't been the same since. Thoughts, recommendations would be very welcome. I just need some ideas before going back to the dyno guys.

    I would check the fuel level
    Remove the fuel bowls and hold them upside down and level
    and bend the tang on the float so the float is level across the center of the bowls
