HSAB plugged or maybe you have the bowl gasket or metering plate gasket installed incorrectly OR you have the wrong gaskets to start with---a symptom of definitely siphoning fuel out

Was one or more of the air bleeds plugged up ?

Question: Why would 2 seperate carburetors do the same thing
and the solution be a "plug'd" hi-speed air corrector be the answer?

Technically doesn't make sense unless jim lives in the desert an he doesn't.....

Not sure if you wrote "its solved" but you can run the engine up to about 2500RPM and put a gloved hand or towel over the carb top when the engine has almost died remove your hand or the towel and let the RPM come back up---do this 2-3 times and see if it clears up ---what you are doing is going from vacuum to siphoning and jostling any particles that may been the bleeds or the idle passages--kinda self cleaning or sloshing process by going back and forth
