Stromberg carb

Hello, new here..
I have 1935 packard.. I have a problem with it running.
It will start and idle and can rev up but, it will not accelerate under load. Falls on its face..
Here is what I see.. new plugs, points and wires.. had carb rebuilt awhile back..
If I open the idle jets all the way or close them, no change to the engine.. if I look down into throat I see a continuous stream of fuel from a cross bar about halfway down (should be the accelerator tube ??) also accelerator pump is non responsive.. I have never seen a carb with a continuous stream of fuel..
Any help or ideas are appreciated
Thank you
It’s a stromberg carb

For starters, is your Packard a 120, an Eight, or a Super Eight? And which Stromberg carb, they each used different units.

Last time I had that problem it was the coil. Try a spark tester and see if the spark goes away at higher RPMs. I would check compression too.

Usually an accelerator pump issue, which you seem to have. Get the carb number, and I can copy the stromberg section from the a period motors manual. I/Kev put the Packard section on here years ago.
Continuous stream usually means the float is stuck/sunk and it's overflowing. May need a new float, they were brass and corrode and fill up/no longer float.
Is the tail pipe black/sooty inside, indicating XS fuel?
