Here's my story. I purchased a 72 1275 that had sat in storage for 16 yrs. Drained fuel tank, flushed lines,changed filter, changed all fluids, changed dist. cap, rotor, spark plugs, wires, oil, filter, installed carb kits (2), checked compression- front to back- 135-130-125-125, pistons and cylinders looked good, although it does smoke. Front three plugs are clean and the rear one is black. Had valve job done, installed another intake manifold as the one that was on it was cracked. It will start and run for a while and sounds good. Then it will die and I can't get it re-started. You can smell the gas and hear the electric fuel pump running. Plugs are then wet. I can stick my finger in either carb and it comes out wet. Certainly looks to me like way to much fuel. I bench set the carbs by directions I got from a fellow forum member who has worked on little british cars for 40 years. When I push the car back in the garage there was a wet spot (looks like gas and oil) underneath it where it had run out of the exhaust manifold. I greatly enjoy these little british cars as I have two others (76-79)which only have one carb and they didn't give me near the headache this one has. Any suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
