A little update on my situation. This past Friday I got some unexpected time off from work and the weather was perfect, mid 70's with low humidity.

I removed the intake air cleaner and intake boots. The right carb is the problem. There was gas in the intake boot on that side alone. The float valve is surely sticking open.

I've made the decision to go ahead and remove the original intake manifold and SU carbs. I'm going to install an edelborck manifold and 4 barrel carb. I can spend basically the same amount of time dissemble and rebuilding the carbs as replacing the entire intake. Plus if there are problems in the future, I know which idiot to blame, me!

After I replace everything, going to change the oil because there surely is gas in it now.

Just need the time off to do the replacement and the oil change. Should be easy. Thanks everyone for the help.
