    Float issue

    that I caused. When riding wide open in 4th the other day it would bog and what I think was running out of gas. I would roll to a stop, kick it and start right back up and run until I did the same thing. So I thought the floats weren't letting the bowl fill all the way up so I pulled the carb apart and made a slight.....ever so slight bend in the float, I believe up. I was late at night, I should have waited but I just got jets and new needle. So I didnt test it until the next day, I turned the gas on, didnt check and dumped about a gallon of race gas on my garage floor. So Im thinking I went to far with the adjustment bend? Which direction should I go to correct this? I just want to make sure I dont do it wrong again, tired of pulling the carb in and out. Does anyone have a link on how to measure the float adjustment?

    I appreciate any help.
