Re: Rochester Q-jet Float Setting
I'm with you, Bill, when I was in the repair field, I rebuilt a LOT of Q-jets and always set the float to spec. I held the top cover upside down so the float seated the needle and measured to the molding line at the front of the float. If I remember right you need the bowl to cover gasket in the measurement too. That would drop the float down the thickness of the gasket, if he isn't measuring with it on the cover.
