Another possibility - check your airbox.  There is a doohickey
at the end of the airbox (pressure reg I think) with a vacuum line that
goes into the airbox.  The diaphragm inside my PR was leaking and so the
fuel was pissing into the airbox.  This after I replaced and rebuilt the
metering head twice trying to find the leak...
