DCOE plastic floats

PostPost by: Briggs1 » Tue Nov 29, 2005 12:09 am

Has anyone changed from brass to plastic floats on their DCOE's and know
what the settings for the plastic float are?

One of my brass floats just took a dive. The only thing I can find on the
internet says 12.5 - 13mm at the end of the float.

Any first hand experience capable of verifying or countering this setting?

I installed at the 12.5mm level and it's running really rough.

After having three brass floats crack in my race motor, I have switched
to the plastic floats and run them at 12mm with no problems
