Not weird at all, that's usually the sign of a improper float level inside the carb.

I don't have specs for a '74, but a good rule of thumb on the 2100/2150 carbs is if the top of the float is parallel to the top of the carb main body you'll have the 1/4" fuel level they specify.

well the float level was off so I adjusted and started car, I noticed when it warmed up fuel would drip continusly out the secondary venturi into the secondary throttle bore...it would idle lower until I cracked the idle jet (top of carb nearest the firewall) What causes this, to much fuel pressure or something clogged somewhere?

Dripping out the vent tube is usually either the float level is too high, or the needle and seat assembly is leaking.
