Re: 465 ?????

Float level too high or crap cought in your needle and seat. There is a plug on side of float bowl that you unscrew. The nut at top with a screw on top, adjust that so fuel just sits on bottom of hole..Tighten everything up.. The get to needle and seat undo the nut with screw on top and from memory it should be under that..

Lower the float level.
Undo the sight plug, loosen the screw on top of the bowl, and adjust the nut until fuel is 'just' trickling out the hole.
Clockwise lowers the level and vice versa.

Also when you turn the secondary float down the float level won't go down unless the secondaries are using fuel. Actuate the secondary throttle a little to check the float level after adjustment.
