I'm having the opposite problem. No issues while running the highway but a very rough start.

i have found carb cleaner to help get the junk out of the pivot pin which will sometimes just make it stick. Make sure you have vacuum to the choke parts. If I remember right, there is a electric servo to close the choke and a vacuum line to open it up at temp.

Throw that carb away and buy a weber or a motorcraft.

You can check your float to make sure it is closing the inlet valve where the fuel line comes in. You can check the needles and make sure they are straight. Make sure the Electric connection is secure at the back that controls the Fuel/Air mixture. in the bottom between the barrel you should see a rod moving back and forth. Make sure the tops of the venturis are tight (it should look like the top of a flat head screw with a hole in the middle.) Hopefully that top isn't missing on either of them, or it is probably in your manifold or engine somewhere.

is the gas overflowing or being sprayed out under force. Check to see if you have back pressure forcing the gas out. If the gas is just overflowing its the carb. If there is pressure blowing it out you may have a blown head gasket.This is worst case scenario just something to check in your trouble shooting. If you get a carb go with the motor sport.
