2. Increase or decrease pointer-to-hinge angle with a thin blade screwdriver until top surface of float element is parallel with base of carburettor. Both plastic elements must also be parallel with each other; if not, carefully twist elements to obtain correct parallelism (excessive twisting force can separate plastic from metal hinges).
3. Repeat above steps 1 and 2 until desired results are obtained.
But then, who would follow the Bing manual; where's the fun in that? YMMV.
Especially when they use weasel words like "approximately"!
I'm for dumping the fuel into a graduated cylinder and reading the volume to 1/4cc.
