F7 175 float height

[IMG]IMG_0229[/IMG]My Clymer manual says 18mm from the gasket on the bowl to top of the float.I can't even get that low without the float hitting the bottom of the float. I'm inclined to go with the gas stain on the float parallel to the bowl.
Here is a photo showing 18mm, I got a long way to go.

i could be mistaken, but i believe the measurement is from the gasket on the float bowl to the arm of the float... something to peak at. i'd be inclined to go with the stain as well... it tends to show that it worked there for some time

In my mind thats the bottom of the float where you have the verniers.

The diagram in Clymer's shows measuring that way. But the general conscience from my mechanic friends is to make it level.

[Well the F7 is running once again, the clutch transplant worked, no more slipping clutch, carb still needs some tweaking It bogs down at WOT may need to go up a size on the main due to the ethanol crap we have to buy here in CT.
I doing a 80 mile tiddler (bikes under 305cc)ride on Sunday hopefully this year I'll be faster then my friends XL175.

If it's slower than an XL175 , you got problems.

I did the fiddler tour on Sunday, my friend who plan the route did a great Job of finding the perfect roads around south central CT for a bunch of old small bikes, we did about 80miles. The F7 ran okay most of the time though the cultch still slips at WOT and the carburetor still needs so tuning. A lot of the riders where and are road racers so I didn't feel bad about being past by a couple of old 175 Jawa's and a Guzzi Airone.
