I put a new repair kit in my HM80 Tec carburetor however I left the float spacing as it was although it was a bit wider than the gap required by the Tecumseh carb tool. I set the main jet needle out 1 1/2 turns but when tried to adjust engine when running I can screw the needle in 1 1/2 turns and engine keeps on running the same as when its out 1 1/2 turns, also the primer floods it easily. The engine starts good and runs fairly well. I wondering if I need to set the float gap more accurately in order to be able to adjust the carburetor and make it less prone to flooding when priming. Thanks for advice.
