Fred: The high float bowl level could certainly explain your constant plug fouling problem. If the bowl level gets too high, excess fuel could be forced thru the pilot jet instead of having the venturi do it as it's designed to do. If this is the problem, either the float needle valve is leaking through, or the float tang needs to be bent so that it closes the valve properly. Page 4-11 of the manual explains how to do this.

The accelerator pump sounds OK, starting to pump not less than 1/8 throttle.
