I kinda feel bad that I was on here the other night bragging on my Willys 2 barrel......I just got it back from refresh and I put it back on today. I got the float adjusted and it was idling for about 3-4 minutes when all of a sudden fuel starts spraying out the top. So I take off the ***** for the sight hole and fuel starts pouring out. So I adjust the float level again and now the float ***** is almost all the way in where the adjustment nut isnt really holding it. Then it did it again. So I ******* float back up and started over....this time it ran about 10 minutes and never did it again, but I notice my fuel pressure gauge was very erratic and I dont remember this happening before......any suggestions?

I'm not sure about your erratic fuel pressure gauge readings but the other deal was most likely a particle of something that was temporarily wedged between the needle & seat. Something very small can cause the situation you described. Make sure your fuel filters are doing the job and it shouldn't happen again. If it does, very often tapping on the fuel bowl in the area of the needle & seat with something like a screwdriver handle will be enough to dislodge the particle.
