Ok, under the center section of the carb, or the body, are 2 plugs that are casting plugs. They need to be sealed with jb weld while rebuilding for this exact issue.

Been rebuilding those carbs for 25 plus years. Great carb when set up right

Something is either loose or cracked on the float bowl. Have you checked that?
