Float level adjustment '36 Century

Recommended Posts

Looking in my shop manual for float adjustment on a Stromberg EE22 it states that in order to set the float at 5/8" from the top of the float bowl the car needs to be running with the top of the carburetor off. Has anyone heard of this or done it? Also it doesn't look like 5/8" is correct.

I've done this adjustment on my '36 EE22. With the screws out that hold the top cover in place, set the top cover back on and start the car. This just makes me feel better than having the bowl full of fuel sitting open when the car fires. I adjusted the float to yield the fuel level to the recommended 5/8 inch. My car runs well at this fuel level. David
