36 Series 40 Carb Float Adjustment


Recommended Posts

Are there any instructions on adjusting the float? I would assume you bend the tab on the back where it contacts the needle valve but that looks like fairly heavy brass. Don't want to break anything.

The best way to adjust the float on many older carburetors is to change the thickness of the fuel valve seat gasket.


This method will work well on the Stromberg. 



I only have a very thin washer on it now. Carb is flooding. Need more needle valve in the fuel bowl.
