    Carbs Overflowing, 1980 750F, VB42 carbs

    Must've done something ass backwards because all four carbs are overflowing. Now I've put floats in upside down before and had to correct them, but these floats look like they're made to be fool proof. The floats are all plastic and have a groove that 'look' like they hold the float needle stopper. No metal tab to adjust. This goes back to when I pulled the carbs out to clean them. They started overflowing, so I bought rebuild kits, rebuilt all four and still, overflowing. So I'm thinking I may have flipped the floats back when I cleaned the carbs.

    So I guess my question is, should the floats fit up into the carb body more so, or, should they hang down into the bowl more so.
