float level

My holley has externally adjustable floats and sight glasses.
Do I adjust the level with the sight glasses in or out?

Set float level with sight glasses in . The reason they were invented for is so the fuel doesn't run all over the manifold when performing this procedure.
You don't want a fire on the nice new engine .

Re: float level

I have heard clear sight glasses arent a good idea because they are prone to cracking / breaking off around where the o-ring sits?

Very true. Thats why you never take them out :) Plus they also discolour after awhile too.
