IIRC you have replaced the condenser ......twice. Gotta believe that isn't the problem.

Still a puzzle wrapped in an enignma. When you disassemble the carb pay attention to the float height adjustment. Gasket on. ....and for any binding however slight in the float pivot and shaft. Float height .260" factory. Most set it at .250 above the gasket. It's not a six barrel Holley so .010" probably isn't that critical. This may be redundant as it seems like you have had your fingers in these and more complicated carbs in the past.

A couple of years ago I stumbled on Kevin LaRues' article on myfordtractor IIRC detailing rebuilding the MS carb. Enough information to cause sensory overload but excellent information. He covers it all. Lots of pictures too.
