    I was coming home from work yesterday and noticed my truck didnt want to idle, it was flooding out and bad. So when I got home and starting looking at it. I saw gas dripping from the passenger side throttle linkage. I figured my intake gasket had popped a hole, but underneath the carb (Edelbrock 600) is dry. I took it apart and gave it a good cleaning and put it back together with the same results. Fuel is dripping from the primary and secondary linkage's, right through the springs from what I can tell. Anyone have any idea's how to fix this??

    Thx,
    Stomp

    Maybe you need new carb gaskets.

    Maybe your throttle shaft bushing are worn?
