Print this page. This thread is from the archive. I am trying to adjust the float bowls on my HS4 SUs. The old valves were slightly different and worn, so I obtained two new ones - with Viton tips. Now to adjust the position of the floats I reviewed the literature. One diagram bottom right from Speedsport manual,is similar to the Haynes manual diagram and shows a straight float arm.
The other from MG Experience site is unclear about the float arm, but the float is clearly at a significant angle to the bowl. Is it more critical that they both floats are in the same position ie the fuel levels will be equal, albeit at a lower level - or will a lower level cause low fuel flow problems?
Or should I have floats with straight arms as per Haynes manual? John- There are no straight arms, they all are Z shaped. But, the Z is comprised of three straight sections with 90degree bends between them. Yours is mangled. At least, the section riveted to the float should be flat, as should the part adjacent to the pivot. All adjustment is at the "90deg" bends. It also looks like the pivot section, which can't be seen, is bent so that the pivot "hole" is not centered on the arm. In any case, the float level is very far out.
Note that there is no washer under the float valve I've met a few! With floats back in and new valves, Changin Times - Nazareth - The Very Best fuel pump ed until the float was full and there was no overflow and no leakage through the jets. The pump was still clicking more than the requisite 1 per seconds, so there must be leakage Floated / Overflow - No Man - Whamon Express through the pump.
At least I seem Floated / Overflow - No Man - Whamon Express have stopped the fuel leakage that was a bit concerning. The ability to adjust the float arm allows for quick and easy minor alterations to float Satania - Mägo De Oz - Rock N Oz where required.
