A bad mechanical fuel pump could leak in the engine. This not always the case but just check the oil for a gas smell to confirm this or not. You are getting the fuel injection and carbed engines confused. They are two different beast. Also if I was you I would look into the "nutter bypass" to make it simpler to work on and better performance from your engine. Now if you have problems to keep the engine to idle right then you will need to clean out the idle circuit in the carb they get clogged easily.
idle circuit, is that the venturi tubes? Sorry, just been a while since I had my carter bbd
