    I've been trying to get better action out of my Q-jet on extreme angles. I've made some improvement by extending the vent and lowering the float level. The factory spec for my carb is 11/32, and it's currently at 15/32. Has anyone found the best setting for float level, for power and angles? Trying to get some numbers before I tear it apart again. Thanks all!

    I've go my float set at 13/32 and I have let it sit on a 60 degree + incline forever and not had it sputter once. Thats with a stock vent tube. I have not tried anything real steep sideways for a long period of time, but I have never had it give out on me. The only time I have problems is hitting a HUGE bump fast enough will make it die, but I hear the vent tube fixes that problem.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.
