Went to start the old gal up and let it idle for a few before taking it for
a short drive.  Went to back the Chevy out of the way and the TD died.  It
was also gushing gas out of the front carb.  Got that stopped, sort of, and
then the old gal would not start.  It would crank just fine and acted like
it wanted to catch but would not.  Turned the key on again this morning and
it started gushing fuel so I did not try and start her up.  Pulled the float
bowl tops off and the floats out.  There was a small amount of crud in the
bottom of both bowls, don't know how it got there, I have an in-line fuel
filter between the gas tank and the fuel pump.  Also, the float from the
front carb has gasoline inside of it yet it was floating on top of the float
bowl.  I suspect that is the reason fuel was gushing out of the front carb;
back carb was not gushing fuel.

I don't understand why she won't start and why I have crud in the carbs,
can't find a hole in the float.  How can one find a hole in the float and
can it be fixed.  Not just too tight to buy a new float but also wanted to
drive the TD this weekend on a tour.
