Now the right-hand one is flooding. You can see fuel pouring into it after the engine is shut off. Today I tried replacing the needle-valve and the needle valve seal, and I tested the float to see whether it was punctured. As far as I can see, nothing helped.
When this happened with my son's car, the real problem turned out to be a bad "new" float valve. Actually it was a bad pair of them, as I guess the rebuild kit had sat on the shelf too long. I ended up using the old ones, as they didn't stick open. I don't know how they did that, but after I changed them for the old ones, the problem was corrected. I hope this helps, and just a thought.
