  1. Default Mercury 500 Needle valve

    My new needle valves are spring loaded and my question is....how do I adjust my float valve with spring needles? I am concerned about distorting springs when attempting to get proper float measurements.

    -I do not believe you should start " messing " with springs.

    Totally agree. I'm going to just leave float levels alone and hope the needle valve springs keep my float correct.
