My son's CJ5 has an Eldelbrock that leaks through the vents on top of the airhorn. What should i check?

I would be checking the float level out and the condition of the float needle and seat.

^^^ What he said...You've either got crap in the needles or a sunk float. Leaks from both of them? I'd doubt that both floats sunk, so i'd say it's a fair bet that the needles have dirt in them.

and while you have it apart put in the off-road needles and seats and reset the fuel level. That is if it hasn't been done already.
