flooding

is caused when the needle valve/s is/are not shutting of the fuel when the level is reached in the float bowls.

The floats if floating should do this providing the needle valves and seats are clean.

An inline filter between the tap and carbs is recommended.

Does your fuel tap have a diaphragm  in it?
