Has someone put an electric pump on the truck? I ask only because if you are not getting gas and the engine isn't turning over, the mechanical fuel pump can't pump fuel. If there is no electric pump, something tells me the needle and seat are not allowing fuel to enter the carb all of the time. You may need to remove it, take it apart, soak it in carb cleaner, and rebuild it. That is the only thing that makes sense to me at this point. As far as the gas shooting into the carb after it sits, the only thing I can say is the accellerator pump is bad.
When you cleaned the float bowl, by any chance did you change the setting for the float level?
