And a bad O-ring was the cause of my problem! When I compared the old N&S assembly to the new replacement part, the flatness of the O-ring was very obvious. I guess it had lost it's sealing capability over the years. Reinstalled the bowl with a new N&S and new gaskets and everything works great now. No fuel pouring into the secondary chambers. Thanks everyone for all of your help, proving once again what a wealth of information this forum is.
