Is the return line on your fuel filter at the top(AKA 12o'clock) position?
Where did you get the FP?
The fuel leaks out of the bottom of the accelerator pump bowl.
Check the float height. The carter BBD runs just fine when you remove the top of the carb. to check things out. Just don't loose the coil spring inside the piston-
Disco the feed line from the tank to the FP, and with the gas cap off. Blow some air through the line. Do you hear any bubbling inside the tank? You should-

Got the pump from Pep Boys. It is a new pump, not rebuilt. Taking the top off this weekend. Had a 69 Jeepster Commando that would run out of gas with a full tank. Traced that to the nylon sock filter in the tank. Did away with that and installed dual inline filters to fix the problem. Return line is at 12:00. Thanks/
