Default Cylinders Filling up with fuel... SBC w/ Edelbrock Carb.

OK So last week I fired the Jeep up and it was fine No issues at all. Cranked over just fine with out a single issue. I let it run for about 45 minutes to an hour to burn off some old fuel that was in the tank. After I was done I unhooked the battery and closed the hood.

Today I remounted the steering column, hooked the battery back up, turned the key on to prime the carb and let it sit for no more than 2 minuets. Got to crank it over and it just started to click. SO I pull all the plugs and the number 8 cylinder was filled with fuel.

I am running a Edelbrock 650 Carb w/ electric chock and a 4-8 psi electric fuel pump and I am running a Edelbrock fuel pressure regulator as well witch I have set at 5 psi.

I can build the crap and repair around 85% of it all, but when it come to fuel, electrical and transmission repairs I get lost.

Thanks for any and all feed back.


Oh and one last thing could this also be a reason why the DS plugs are blackend and the PS are nice an clean or do I have some other issue going on there as well.

Float in the carb could be stuck open and the angle of the engine could be why the fuel it where it is along with the intake valve open.

Take apart carb and clean it and put a new fuel filter on. Might want to change the oil too, check it at least.

This. Float would have to be stuck or off camber bad to allow fuel to flow through to cylinders.

Is the carb an "Off-road" carb or street version? I am running a Holley truck avenger and it takes a lot of off camber to flood it out.

Street version on the. I really don't want to rebuild this thing. Last time did one i messed it up pretty damn good. Alrighty then I will look in to rebuilding it and getting the Off-Road rebuild...Assuming that they still make one for the Edelbrock.

I was running a 700 Holley street carb, hit a bump off road and it would burble and fart... The t/a off road carb works very good off road. Would recommend for anyone not running injection...
