I went to prep my car for fire up and my rear carb leaked a serious amount of gas out when I pressurized the system with 3.25 psi of fuel. I removed the carb thinking the float valve was stuck (tapping did not resolve it).

Once off I then consulted my manual on float specs. There are none. They are specs for two types of Delortos but nothing on float specs for the Strombergs. I have not consulted the TR8 manual (same carbs) yet but wil later today to see what it might say.

Anyone have some float height specs, and more importantly - WHERE to measure the specification? I could fiddle around and guess through trial and error where the height should be, but I'd like to avoid that if possible.  And, is there any replacement for that ball valve that acts as a proper float valve? I would really like to see a high quality spring loaded needle valve there.

Thanks much,
