Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, if the carb has been rebuilt and checked to be working correctly, then proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• check for a possible vacuum leak on the carb to intake coupling of the " cylinder gets too much gas...";• sync and balance the carbs;• ensure integrity vacuum feed/hose from 1 of the rubber intake boot to the fuel petcock ;• verify vacuum port of each rubber intake boot is capped/covered.Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
