Starts,will not stay running. seems to need choke all time

Choking the engine restrict the air intake into the carb, and in turn the amount of fuel being drawn through the carb into the cylinder. If it seems to only seems to want to run with the choke on, the you most likely have a fueling issue. As in its not able to draw enough fuel through the carb for the amount of air its getting.

Check the fueling system from the filter, to the carb and possibly the carb itself. Replace and fatigued diaphragms.

When off gas is leaking

1. remove the hose from the carb and see if the petcock is shutting off the gas and if not clean, repair or replace the petcock.
2. look in the tank and see if it has rust in the tank even a small haze of rust as rust will cause the needle and seat to stick in the carb and make the gas leak. If the gas tank has a lot of rust it may need a tank rubber liner kit added or even a new tank to stop the leaking.
3. if the bike has been sitting for a while it may have trash in the fuel system(carb/petcock/tank). Rust or any trash can cause a leak. Properly clean out the carb and fuel system and add a new filter when done.
4. Improperly adjusted or bad needle/seat or float in the carb will cause continual leaking. Replace the needle/seat/float and adjust the new one when installed. Check your service manual for float adjustments.

Carb is overflowingon 100 nomad. Ihae replaced carb, fuel pump and petcock. Does this bike have a sensor to shut off the fule pump?

The flow of fuel it stopped by a float actuated plunger in the bottom of the carb. When the fuel in the carb bowl raises the float, the plunger if lifted and prevents more fuel from entering the carb until the level lowers the float.

Where the the fuel coming from/out of on the carb? Because if you have replaced all the parts you say you have, all that is left of the fuel system are hoses, and the tank.

I do not have a tool to fit the needle valves (2) on this carb.? Is there a generic?

I am going to assume you want to adjust the carb. The manufactures make it difficult for you to do this because:
The carbs are preset from the factory to give the best performance and best EPA (emissions)
You can get carb adjusting tools from amazon and other sources. Just do a search for that term.
Before you adjust the carb I suggest you clean the fuel system. Remove the air cleaner and shroud around the carb and spray the carb down with carb cleaner. If you have an air cleaner, replace it. If it is a foam style clean it with Dawn dish detergent. Add fuel stabilizer to your gas/oil mix or 1 oz of Sea Foam brand carb treatment to a gallon of gas/oil mix.
A good cleaning is probably all you need and adjusting the carb will make matters worse.

mcdevito75 here, I think you mean the acclerator pump in the carb, here"s how to check it, Operate the gas pedal linkage from the carb itself and at same time look into carb. see a straem of gas each timeyou operate the gas pedal linkage, if not check for fuel at the carb. You could also have a dirty gas filter or a problem with the ignition system, check for spark at plugs.

Old chevy 235 six cylinder, when cold it falls on its face

Question, does it stall, or bog? A few things come to mind. You say the carb. is new, what is the cfm of the carb.? Could be too much carb. for the cam. It could be a problem with the accl. pump on the carb. dumping too much fuel on take off. Have you checked the fuel pressure at the carb. also? You say you checked the timing and vac. advance, but is the timing set high enough? Usually this is a sign of too much fuel being dumped. If you have the chance, try another carb. Let me know.
