I took the carburetor off and took a look at the power valve cover. There was no apparent gas coming out of the cover when it was running, but after removal the gasket and inside was wet. Is this a case that the power valve is faulty or not tightened enough. The p[ower valve was not the style that I have from a Ford CT-191 rebuild kit. The number is 8.5 and looks like a Holley PV. Now that it is off is there a wire or technique to go through the idle passages.
