Angry Triple fuel problems

Ok, rebuilt carbs and petcocks over the winter. Tried to take my bride for a ride yesterday, first time fueled up this year. Our 35th anniversary.

1). Two right side carbs overflow badly while running. Not while turned off. Do not overflow when petcock is on prime while engine turned off. Float level?

2) Tank was leaking from underside also. Turned out to be crumbling fuel sender gasket.

3). While testing for tank leak, tested petcocks. One still leaks with engine off. I am thinking diaphragm with o-ring is not sealing. I rebuilt these during the winter following very detailed directions, including polishing the seats. Ideas?

Any help with carb overflow problem or petcock drip problem?

Very frustrated. Ready to move on to something fuel injected!
