Hi again,

Yes, I'm really new to this! What is the proper way to measure the correct setting for the floats in a carburetor? The instructions indicate: "To obtain correct fuel level check position of float to measure 1-5/32" plus or minus 3/64" from casting to farthest point of float. Bend float arm next to float to obtain this measurement." Is this measurement made like I'm showing it in the photo, or should this measurement be made while the carburetor is in the operating position? Also, should the measurement be made from the flat part of the casting where the two carb halfs join, or from the irregular shaped part of the casting directly above the floats themselves. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. You would think something so critical would be clearly explained. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Just like you are doing it, with it upside down and on the machine surface of the upper casting. You may have to move to a different spot so you can measure the gap at the far edge of the floats (farthest point of float)

If you have a good kit the instructions should give you the directions of how to do that and a picture to boot. If not send me an e-mail and I can send you a copy of an instruction sheet I have. I use Walker brand kits sold at O'Reilly's for the carb kits. Good kits with very good instructions
