Kingston L2 float settings

Looking through the Model T forums, there seems to be a consensus that the top of the float opposite from the pivot should be 7/16 inch below the carb body when the float is holding the needle against its seat.

Thanks, I did try that setting and no luck, it is a different needle/seat setup and cork float to the L4 or Holley, after reading alot of info I have come to the conclusion that the info is more about the Kingston L4, here is a sample photo of my bowl.
I have come up 1/4” from the 7/16” level and it seams to be running better but I didn’t believe it’s  correct yet.

There is quite a large write up on the L-2 in "Dyke's Automobile and gasoline engine Encyclopedia". It covers adjustment and operation. My addition of Dykes is: 16th edition 1934. It also covers the differences in the Y and the L-1 models.
