I'm going to guess that it is a Holley, and that is the bowl vent, also the float level could be too high.

Not a Holley. Motorcraft  (Autolite)? Need better picture

If gas is coming out there the float is sticking or sunk.

Autolite 2100. Simple carb, works better than Holleys and very easy to work on.

So you ain't the only one who puts a Ford carburetor on an IH.

Been doing it for forty years, changed dozens of 'Binders over. That and an electronic ignition swap makes them purr like a kitten fulla cream! Another trick...cut an inner tube and make an "umbrella" over the distributor. The butterfly hoods tend to pour rain water directly on to the cap and wires, causing misfires and engine stalls.

They might purr like a kitten fulla cream after they're choked and warmed up for twenty minutes....

The 478 V-8 in the FleetStar I drove didn't seem cold blooded. Seem to remember it had a manual choke,  couple pushes on the gas pedal, pull the choke out and it would fire on the 2nd or 3rd revolution at ANY temp. By the time it had 90 psi of air pressure built up you could push the choke in half way and idle around the lot and into the street and be on your way. Soon as the needle on the temp gage moved push the choke all the way in.  Little Holley 2 bbl, said Holley across the float bowl in big letters.  Always amazed me that tiny 1/4" fuel line could carry almost 20 gallons of gas an hour to that tiny carb,  got around 3 to 3-1/4 mpg trying real hard to run 65 mph.
