1983 Mercury 80 hp 4cyl. model 6031534

Bottom carb drips fuel a minute or so after shut down. Seems to pool up right at the opening. Carbs are rebuilt, reed valves are new. Float level is set at 11/16" according to the manual. It runs nice and dry until I shut it off.
No flooding or anything running out the vents. Top one doesn't seem to do it. I pulled the bottom carb off and it was a bit wet behind it. I even tried another carb and had similar results. This motor has the round reed blocks that mount around the crankshaft. (dumb idea if you ask me). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Frank.
