Default setting float height

ok I've searched adn searched, I've found a litany of dead links and no real info on how to set the float height. I've been into the service manual, and lets assume that I don't have a fuel level guage. Let us also assume I have a set of vernier calipers. So, anyone have any tips/advice on how to do it? also I've read the factory pro tips on how to do it in the past, and they are so poorly written and without pictures that I'd rather cut my own arm off than read it for the 100th time.

Anyone?

freak - thanks in advance.

Remove the covers to the floats. Put your ruler, caliper, etc on the edge (metal part of the carb, where the cover sits on) and then allow the float to fall back and measure the distance. Bend the metal 'tong' preventing the float from extending any further in the direct you need it to, to adjust it.

I have no idea on how to adjust float height, but you seem to be having a problem with #2 cylinder. I check if that #2 float is off from the other 3 and if it is, try and get it set the same as the other 3.
