My Edelbrock starting pouring fuel out of the vent tubes even while the bike was running. I assumed it was a defective needle and seat or possibly spoke with Edelbrock tech support and they suggested the needle and seat. I was sent a replacement needle and seat but when I took the float bowl off it didn't appear to be the same piece. I spoke with the tech support and requested them to take a look at the carb. Turns out my needle and seat WAS defective and they also completely rebuilt the carb. I was very satisfied with the customer service Chris Silva provided. My carb was waiting for me on my front porch when I got home from work yesterday. I have had my carb over 1 year so I wasn't expecting everything to be done at no cost to me.

:applause: Edelbrock customer service.

Yeah, Chris is cool. I was missing the needle adjuster and the tab for the idle adj. cable wasn't chased on the threads, so he sent me new ones same day. Very happy.

I kept my stock carb as a backup if needed.
