At idle, my carb is dripping gas until it floods the engine and chokes it out. I think I may have set the float height incorrectly the last time I took apart the carb :bonk:. Does anyone know the correct adjustment for a 2bbl Rochester (#17085008) on a 4.3L?

If you have the measuring tool set it at 11/32

Thanks. How about float drop? The chart that the rebuild kit came with seems to list adjustments for every motor EXCEPT the 4.3L. I just took a guess at the closest match.
