How did you get a 4 barrel on a 2 barrel intake. What you need is a 4 barrel intake not a adaptor.
Those were actually designed to put a 2BBL carb in place of the 4BBL even though they work both ways. Those carbs are not that hard to make work, maybe they don't have any old school techs there. It really sounds like they don't have the accelerator pump setup properly.
The old Autolite 2 barrel carbs are one of the simplest and best carbs ever made. Get someone else to help you with it. You may have an issue other than the carb. Accelerator pump or choke issue may be the problem if it is carb related.
