Have you checked the fuel level. It may need adjusting. When rebuilding a carb with a kit, the carb needs to be fully disassembled and all the parts soaked in a carb cleaning solution for several hours. then the carb body needs to be blown out with a high pressure air nozzle to remove any deposits; if you don't do this, certain deposits may be blocking some passages in the body causing your problem. I've been rebuilding various types of carbs for the last 30 years and have been very successful in correcting flooding conditions.

What year and model is your vehicle. Back in the day, many OEM setups with a carburetor did not have a pressure regulator. The pressure was generally around 4 - 5 psi. Many people that installed aftermarket high volume electric fuel pumps also installed pressure regulators because many of those pumps ran around 8 - 15 psi to accommodate many other makes such as Toyota, Ford, Chevy.

You can install your own aftermarket regulator between the carb and filter which may be the answer to your flooding problem.
