Weber 32/36 DGEV fuel leak

Hey everyone. I recently set up my Weber 32/36 DGEV for the lean best idle. It seems to be running well, but after taking it for a drive I came home and opened the hood and noticed fuel leaking out of the carb. The carb was installed by the previous owner. I'm not sure where exactly it is leaking from. I saw it dripping from the two bolts with the arrows pointing at them in the photos. I went back and looked at some older photos and based on the wet looking area on the manifold, it looks like it may have been leaking for a while. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

if its leaking there, something is set to either run really rich or your float level is set to high and its bleeding out when you turn the jeep off.

I've tried searching for it, but can't find info on checking float level. You don't have a line on that do you?
