Before you put them back in, test the floats by positioning the carbs at the aprox angle they set in the bike and fill them with fluid. Make sure that they don't leak. Easier to test than to remove again. It may help you find the one carb that is causing the problems.

She runs!!!!   No more leaking from the vent hose.  The throttle doesn't snap back anymore but I looked at a pic I took before and it doesn't look the same at the connections now so I'll work on those tomorrow.  Thanks for all the help guys!  If I run onto throttle problems I'll start digging through new posts.  Pizza Cake for all 🍕🎂

Temporary victory (mood killer, I know) but you haven't "solved" the big issue nor protected the engine from future hydrolock death. The next time the needle/seats fail could go unnoticed and wreck the engine. Don't put it off. Get the overflow tubes installed.
Snowmobiles, I have a bunch.
Motorcycles-I haven't had anything except dirtbikes 30 years ago, so this will be all new to me.
