I pulled all the plugs and let the car set while Joline & I were back in Nashville visiting relatives. I hoped that any remaining gas in the cylinders would evaporate while I was gone. Today cranked the engine without the plugs and it spun just fine so I pulled off the primary fuel bowl (it was dry  huh ), replaced the needle & seat with a new Holley part, and dry- set the float level. I did the same thing with the secondary fuel bowl- it was full of gas. The secondary needle & seat o-ring was buggered so I replaced it with a new Holley N & S and dry-set the float level in it, too.
Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to re-install the plugs and fire it up. I'll look carefully to see if I see any gas dripping from the primaries.

What power valve (" Hg) does anyone run in their Holley primary?

Thanks, Stainless. It sure is- I'll drain the oil & re-fill it before starting the engine.

Interestingly, it was common practice in the olden days to use an "oil dilution" system to mix gasoline into the oil before shutdown on aircraft engines in very cold temperatures. When the engine was restarted, the oil was thin enough to circulate and as it warmed up the gas evaporated out of the oil and it became its normal viscosity.
