Hi,

The float is set and shouldn't need to be touched. Sometime you can have problems with the needle sticking cause the fuel to be pushed past and causing flooding or fuel to poor out the breather, if it has one.

You can adjust the float level my very carefully bending the metal tab that pushes on the needle and seat.
Its trail and error to get the level correct. worth changing the needle and seat if you have problems, I have been told that if you
have old unleaded petrol in your car it goes a bit 'gluey' and needles & seats become sticky.
