How do you measure your float level with a Rochester 4 barrel carb? I've read you're supposed to take the top part of the carb off, tip it over, and measure the float - but exactly where do you measure it - at the end of the float, the middle, or where? Also, what is a good level to set the float at?

Any advice will be appreciated!

turning it upside down is for 2bbl. take the top off and remove gasket, then press down on inlet needle end of float until it is lightly seated, then measure about 1/8" back from end of float to the top of carb. set it at 1/4"
