Hi, I may need more info on what engine you are refering to but generally if it is a full plastic float with a new needle fitted it should sit parallel to the carby body when held lightly closed. If it is a brass or cork float you can bend the arms to achieve this. If it is plastic and not parallel you can heat the float arms in boiling water and bend them slightly by hand while cooling them down under cold water. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

When I ease into gas, it dies/or stalls. if I hit the gas no problem.


1 = Check between carb and head for vacuum leaks
2 = Float height could be set to low
3 = Needle height low

Give the carb a good clean with carb cleaner making sure all passages and jets are clear. Reset float height and make sure all flanges seal properly.

Just rebuilt the carbs on my 81 650 midnight maxim and it will run great for a while and then the plugs will turn black and quit running. Seems to be getting to much gas and fowling the plugs. Thanks for...


Sounds like either sticking float needles or incorrect float height setting. If you replaced the float needles with after market ones the setting may need altering. Not a Yam expert, so you will need to consult your manual for the correct height.

Floats not set


Float tabs come set flat to surrounding plate, bend up to decrease level and down to raise level. Raised level too much and you risk fuel overflow on sustained inclines and too low a level and you will lean out at high revs and damage valves/piston real quick. There is no set level to speak of, but better to err on the side of losing a bit of overflow. The overflow drains from the carby via a plastic hose from just above float bowl flange.
Cheers.

What is the float height setting for a 1984 harley davidson ironhead sportster with stock carburetor


With the float bowl off and the float assembled in the carb, hold the carb on it's side with the needle and seat hinge upwards.

Set the float height to 0.630" to 0.670" (16-17mm) from the "bottom" of the float to the gasket surface where the float bowl gasket seal is.

These carbs are notorious for leaking past the needle and seat even when the float level is set correctly. They make a tool for refurbishing the seat in the carb as it is not replacable but the tool is very expensive for what it is and the amount of use will get out of it ($100). Sometimes I've set the float level an additional 1mm low (18mm) to put more pressure on the needle if it does leak. Good Luck!

Just need the height setting for the floats the


YOU CAN ADJUST FLOATS WITHOUT SPECIAL TOOLS. ALL YOU NEED IS A FOOT LONG PIECE OF CLEAR TUBING, SIZED TO FIT THE BOWL DRAIN. SET FLOATS AS CLOSE TO WHAT THEY WERE WHEN YOU REPLACED IT. INSTALL THE BOWL AND PUT THE TUBE ON THE DRAIN. OPEN THE BOWL DRAIN SCREW WHILE HOLDING THE TUBE UP BESIDE THE CARB. WHEN YOU GET THE TUBE BESIDE THE CARB ASSY., THE GAS IN THE TUBE SHOWS YOU THE EXACT LEVEL OF FUEL IN THE BOWL. FROM THIS YOU CAN MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS NECESSARY FOR CORRECT LEVEL. THE LEVEL SHOULD BE RIGHT BELOW THE PLANE WHERE THE BOWL MEETS THE CARB BASE.

Gas running from carb when the bike is running or not


Sounds like your float needle is not seating properly, or your float height is incorrect, or you have trash in the carb. It will need to be taken apart, cleaned, and the float height set. Look at the float needle for wear on the tip.

Cleaning carbs on Suzuki GS650 L, what is the float setting?


to check the float height, invert the carb body holding the float arm pin so the pin will not slip off. With the float arm kept free, measure the height it should be 22.4 + or - 1.0mm
This is what the shop manual says.
basically what that means turn the float bowl upside down and keep the bottom of the float even with the edge of the bowl.
