Is it fuel coming out where the choke butterfly is located ?.Maybe you are giving it too much choke and its just the surplus fuel thats dripping out ?.On my Howard 400 it dont need much choke at all.Have you tried opening the tap on the inlet manifold to “lean” the mixture to see if the engine will at least start and run ?.Is the gasket between the upper and lower bodies ok ?
Im sure my carb has a fixed main jet Andy,not an adjustable one ?.How many turns out have you set it at ?.Have you tried screwing the jet it and see if it still floods ?.Its been a couple of years since i started mine up but i know it only needed half a pull up on the handle on the compression stroke and it would start.
