    Those are great carbs, but angularity is their weak point.
    Try lowering the floats a little.
    If that doesn't work well enough then I suspect that you'll need to get creative with modifying the bowl vents. You'll want to extend them up as high as possible. Not on that carb, but on others I've used J-B Weld and 1/4" Brake/Fuel tube to do this.
