You're on the right track. could be needle and seat leakage (both included in rebuild kit), or maladjusted or saturated float. later more likely. float is separate part from kit. setting will be provided in kit.

"To adjust the float drop, hold the air horn in the upright position and measure the distance between the top of the float, at the extreme outer end, and the air horn casting.

1965 buick skylark float level ajustment for 4.9l carburetor


The float level and float drop are both measured with the gasket in place. Having said that, here are the following measurements.

Float level is measured between the edge of the float seam and the formerly mentioned gasket. This measurement is 1/2" on a 2 bbl. and 1 21/64" on a 4 bbl. for the primary and 1 3/8" on the secondary.

The float drop is measured from the bottom edge of the float as it's hanging from the pivot, to the gasket.

The 2 bbl. is 1 29/32" and the 4 bbl. is 1 19/32" on the primary and 1 3/16" on the secondary.

These measurements and instructions come from a 1965 Chilton Auto Repair Manual as that's the only reference I have.

Hope this helps.

Intercooler line floaded with oil


CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL IN ENGINE INCASE OVER FILLED THIS WILL SUCK IT INTO ENGINE, IF OK CHECK YOUR ENGINE BREATHER TO SEE IF BLOCKED CAN CAUSE BACK PRESSURE IN ENGINE AND START BLOWING OIL SEALS AND GASKETS, AND THE 1ST TO GO IS THE TURBO SEALS, YOU CAN REMOVE AIR INTAKE PIPE TO TURBO AND CHECK FINS INSIDE TURBO WITH YOUR FINGERS TO SEE IF ANY MOVEMENT IN SHAFT. PLEASE DO THIS WITH ENGINE TURNED OFF :)

The measurement of gasoline , Shows the measurement of the wrong


Since all the gauges in a town car are electronic, you may have to completely fill and empty (not to where the car won't run) the fuel tank a few times to recalibrate the new float. (if that's what you replaced) If you did not replace the float, that is what is most likely causing the problem.
