I have a model 620 with a carter bb-1 carb the manuel "owner's " calls for a 3/64 float height. The problem that i get is gas weeeping out around the gasket of the parting surface. I had the carb rebuilt and they set the float at about 1/4 inch. Now it is very hard starting and the plugs are getting very wet. The engine sits at about a 10-13 degree angle. Can anyone help me with the right float setting at this angle .
thanks JOHN
