Are you SURE it's squirting? Pull the air cleaner off and look down each 
throat while you goose the throttle. If there's gas in the bowls, you should 
SEE gas squirting in.

There are a lot of things that can happen to parts in storage, so don't 
assume the stock carb bowls, jets, and passages are all clean and clear.
