Glad to hear your back up and running, yes you are probably right gas drying out gets thicker and sticky best thing you can do when putting the carbs away if they are open to the atmospher is to drain them, just pulling the plug on the bottoms is the easy way.

As for the vent there are a bunch of Strom's 175's some have the vent (later one's) and some dont and use another path to vent the float bowl's, but if you plug it your car will run for awhile then die out, once the pump refills the float you will be able to drive off again but will keep repeating.
