Dave, I'm curious as to why you've plugged the float chamber vent and not the crankcase breather nipple.   There should also be a plug on the manifold flange nipple, perhaps also a hose for the fuel overflow routed into a catch bottle.

I have seen these carbs with the manifold flange nipple connected via a short hose to the lower right nipple (beside the fuel inlet) - using the upper left nipple as the fuel overflow.

Thanks Minty, I'm pretty happy with it these days, now that I've run several engines thru it, I can think of several things to improve but for now it certainly does the job.
