Thanks for sharing! Although I've adjusted the odd carb for decades, there are always hints to pick up.

Excelent link on how to adjust a carburetor float

PostAuthor: jtsil » Sat Jun 20, 2015 11:07 am

Found this link I watch the video at least 6 times, with lots of attention in the float position, I open my single carburetor without remove it , took the float out, complete crooked, nice for a just overhauled carburetor,
I reset everything as this mechanic teacher show, put everything back together and voila' it work it is screening, I am trying to start at different times, like five minutes stop, 15 minutes stop and 60 minutes stop, and it start at the first try, I want to know if will start tomorrow morning but so far so good.

Link bellow so if someone need some lessons in carburetor float.
