To measure you set the carb on the engine manifold side, then tilt it 15 to 20 degrees away from the float side until the float comes to rest. You have to measure from the carb flange face to the perimeter of the float. The manual says to use a vernier or dial caliper depth gauge. The measurement should be 0.413 - 0.453 in (10.49 - 11.51 mm). If it isn't, remove the float, bend the tab, reinstall the float, then measure again.
