Hi all,

Followup to my first post:

http://www.hondashadow.net/forum/93-member-introductions/371065-working-85-honda-vt500c.html

Hopefully this will be approved and I can start getting some technical assistance.

Bike won't fire. I think it's flooding. An old gearhead opened the bowl drain a smidge and let some gas run down the overflow tube while we hit it. It fired and roughly idled.

Mo float rests about 7mm from the edge of the carb as the float valve just makes contact with the seat. My old gearhead suggested setting the float for maybe 8~9mm and re-assembling everything.

Any thoughts?
