Is the float the type that has a metal plate on top for the pivot?   If so that can be carefully bent a little to buy that small amount of extra room for the float to not hit the cover before shutting off incoming fuel.ChuckBe very careful as to not stress the heated plastic that retains the plate to the top of the float.   Also gasket material can be cut out with a paper punch for a very thin needle seat shim...Sent from my LG Mobile------ Original message------From: Bob Kitterer via SpridgetsDate: Sun, Feb 16, 2020 11:34 AMTo: Spridgets;Cc: Subject:[Spridgets] Carb Question I just opened the float bowl on some new carbs and found that the plastic float almost hits the float bowl cover before closing the needle valve.  I do not think there is enough thread on the needle for enough washer shims to adjust the float to the proper position.  Has anyone had to deal with this and know of a solution?ThanksBob  Kitterer1960 Austin Healey Sprite (Mk IV in disguise)1966 Austin Healey Sprite Mk III (Trevor) - still in boxes2013 MiataPay it ForwardThanks Frank
