Congratulations on getting your car sorted out.  Problems caused by multiple malfunctions are always frustrating.

Your observation that the relationship between fuel level and float height setting is not necessarily consistent, due to variations in the floats, was not something I'd previously given any thought to.  Obviously it's significant, and I've learned something new here, for which you have my thanks.

Unfortunately, the only mention of  the correct fuel level in the float bowl that I've ever seen was a sketch showing it to be not quite to the top of the bowl, but without any dimensions attached.  I'd guess that the level should actuall be slightly less than that -- perhaps halfway between the floor of the shelf and the open top of the float bowl, but I don't know for sure.  Perhaps someone else has can add to this?
