is it the 1.3 with mechanical fuel pump? or did you change to an electric fuel pump?

Are your fuel return lines hooked up to the correct tube?

Did you change anything other than the gasket and water pump? did you have the timing belt off for any reason?

when you lost the water pump, did the engine over heat? I was thinking a blown head gasket or cracked head.

You wouldn't be flooding unless the fuel was dumping down the throat of the carb. it sounds like the timing is off. The fuel spilling out the carb though is from your return line not being connected. Your Samurai can't burn all of the fuel that pump puts out. It needs the return line plumbed to send the excess fuel back to the tank.

yes, any time a weber is run it needs to be regulated to abouth 3 lbs of fuel pressure is what mine runs at, without the regulator it will run but not as smooth as its supposed to and will flood a lot easier
