What kind of angle can I expect a Holley (don't know model #) carb to flood at??
depends somewhat on the float level.
basically once the main discharge nozzle is lower then the fuel level it begins to gravity feed.
It also depends on which direction you are angled. Nose up/down or leaning left/right. Depending on the model/design of the carb, any one of these can/will vary. Q-Jet can handle the greatest angles in all directions due to design. However, there are various anti-slosh kits (sometimes called off-road kits) which help their various carbs a bit (but in reality it still doesn't come close to the Q-Jet, I know, I've tried). Tricks like lowering your float levels or making other modifications can also help, depending on the carb. Of course this is all just general info and no specific help. As to the Holley, I am not able to help you at all there. I swore off the Holleys years ago...
