In addition to replacing the needle valves with the gross jets, make
sure there is no crud on the float shaft and the float itself. I had a
float get stuck once. Cleaned the jets until I was blue in the face and
still gas came out the overflow. It wasnt until I cleand out the float
bowl and noticed the float was stuck. Crud on both the shaft and the float!
