Why does my few-month-old Weber 38 seep gas?

All around the outside of my new (installed several months ago) are the signs of fuel seepage. Stains and grime sticking to the carb. All screws were checked for tightness when installed. Its not around the carb's base, its on the sides of the carb, all around. No real wetness, just telltale signs of amber tinted gas stains and gas smells.

Anyone else observe this on their new 38?

Is gas just able to seep through the Weber paper gaskets easy?

Are you running a regulator?

mine overpressures my 38 and wears out the needle seats in about 6 months or 4 track days, whichever comes first.

Might I suggest a regulator?

Also, if you have a bit of cam, the car can spit back enough gas to do this. When cold, if I don't modulate the throttle, min will bark back, and that with a 280 hi- lift...
