    Problem #1... I hooked up a fuel pressure gauge and found that with my regulator set to 2.5 PSI, I was getting double that at 5psi. Had to bottom it out to .5PSI on the regulator to get 2.5.

    Well to a degree I'm sure it displaces a little fuel in the nozzle, maybe not as much as I think. Probably not my issue now that I think about it.

    My pump is installed at the fuel rail level with...

    I wouldn't say it was 'high' I didn't even measure it to be honest. I measured it by the level of fuel in the nozzle. I suppose I need to pull the bowl cover off and hold the needle and seat closed...

    So I took the time to pull the needles and pistons today to look at my float levels, and I found that I'm having fuel puddle in the carb venturi's with the engine not running. Looks like when the...

    That tells you right there that there's a 90% chance the core is the issue. If the valve or hoses were leaking, it wouldn't get onto the core, meaning you wouldn't be fogging windows as you drive and...

    Sounds like that's where my issue is then. My float levels leave the fuel in the nozzle right at the tip, so I bet it's flooding over with the piston down. I'll lower the float a tad and see what it...

    I would investigate a little further before attempting to pull it. When I bought my car from the PO, it still had factory looking braided hoses on the heater core and heater valve. The hoses were cut...

    Well, it was a junkyard head. Took a lot of cleaning up to run on the L24, seemed to be leaking at every valve.
