          This is a test to see if it is running rich. YOUR tail pipe is running black suggesting rich.

          Warm it up then pull one of the vacuum ports open to introduce more air into the manifold. Like on the 1406 the driver's front vacuum port below the butterflies going direct into the manifold.

          Or pull the power brake vacuum hose off on the rear of the intake manifold.

          If this test speeds up the engine and smooths the engine out. Then you know it is running RICH.

          Then we go from there on the diagnostics.

          "could the intake manifold gasket be causing this"
          I seriously doubt it.
          "im running new square bore gaskets and a summit one inch carb spacer all new on it. no leaks on that part"
          Are you making assumptions? or have you tested them?
          Obviously the rear level is waaaay high.
          New don't meanchit any more.
          You're gonna need to learn about carbs and such, so you might as well order a Book. If you have an electric choke, then for sure it should have a fast-idle screw on the passenger side, and a mechanical interlock to prevent the secondaries from opening when the choke is on.
          My Mopes have never much cared about what brand of plug is in it. The Champions that are in it today were installed in 1999, and have over 100,000 miles on them.
          Your vacuum advance us not the problem unless you hooked it up to full-time vacuum and then set your timing to 10* advance. This is full-time wrong for your engine, and fails on two counts.
          1) if the engine loses vacuum, for whatever reason, to the point that the vacuum drops out,then the idle speed will drop, maybe enough to stall. and
          2) when you nail the gaspedal, vacuum drops very low , and if the engine has a stock timing curve, and was idle-timed with FT advance, it will not have near enough PowerTiming.Yur gonna need another Book.
          on a different note;
          Are you still running the factory log exhaust manifolds and single exhaust? If yes, make sure something is coming out the tailpipe at speed.

              If the sec float level will not adjust [ sight glass full of fuel ], it needs to be FIXED.
              Possible causes:
              - n/s binding
              - debris in n/s
              - float binding
              - float fuel logged.


              'Course, you could fit a reliable Edel AFB or AVS...& use the Holley for a door stop. They are also very good as a weight to stop the garbage bin lid blowing away in a wind....

                It is dripping fuel out of the rear boosters. When it is running bad look down inside the secondaries. You should see no dripping fuel. Fuel heats up gets bigger and the float level gets that much higher. Maybe? More dripping. You can pull both bowls. Measure the distance on the “correct” front bowl. From the top of the float to the bowl edge. Holding it upside down. Then get the back one a hair bigger gap between the top of the float and the top of the bowl. You can stick drill bits in to measure. It should get you close. It at the very least will stop it from dripping fuel out of the secondary booster.

                Take the rear float bowl off. Turn it upside down. The adjust the float so that the top of the float is parallel to the top of the float bowl. Then go one turn (or a bit more) LOWER. Put the bowl back on. The float level should now be low. Start the engine and let it warm up a bit and then slowly raise the float until it’s up about 1/3rd of the sight glass and leave it.

                IMO, half way up the sight glass is too nigh for most engines.

                    IMG_20210414_005100182.jpg If your rear float is too high pull the rear fuel bowl. Look at the float hinge and you will see a little silver tang that is stamped into the float arm. You will MAY have to bend that tang "up" just a bit. That is what contacts the needle/seat and controls how much float adjustment is available.

                    If you float arm has a simple "bulge" instead of the tang you will likely have to carefully bend the float arm DOWN a bit at a time until the fuel level adjustment can be made with the lock nut..

                    I had to do this today while assembling my race carb. The factory adjustment of that tang was way off...

                    The above video is an excellent guide...

                      From a Holley forum
                      Float And Fuel Level Adjustments On Holley Four-Barrel Carburetors - Blogs - Holley Performance Products Forums

                      a) Begin by lowering the fuel level in the fuel bowl to bring down the float. With the engine off, remove the sight plug and allow excess fuel to drain from the sight plug into a rag. Rock the vehicle a little to slosh additional fuel out of the bowl. Failure to lower the fuel level below the sight plug before adjustment will result in a bottomed out float in the floor of bowl.
