The Float Chamber

The float chamber is located between both induction throats. The fuel level in the float chamber is regulated through the buoyancy of the float, that is, the float tang opens or closes the float needle valve. The float level may be adjusted by means of an externally located screw which adjusts the height of the intermediate swivel joint. This provision makes it possible to easily adjust the float level for the particular grade of fuel used. The fuel level may be checked by removing the plug from the inspection port.
