Default Leaking Holley

I have a C2 with a Holley carb. It's leaking gas on both sides, puddling in the center intake crevices. It appears to be coming from the base/gasket area. I've considered replacing the gasket but have to question if something else isn't going on up in the carb; where is this gas coming from to penetrate the base gasket. Numbers on it identifies it as a 66' 327/300 replacement unit Thanks to any insight/suggestions.

The first thing I would do with it is to tear it down and put a fresh rebuild kit in it. Is it a standard square bore Holley or the infamous spread bore?
