Well, after some feedback from a few people, I (we) decided the tang should be level when held upside down.
I set the floats a few months ago and all was working good.
I finally discovered a great cheap way to synchronize my carbuerators. I installed a 3/16" tube in my carb adapters , (round to rectangle). I used a 6ft piece of clear tubing , with some water in it , to join the "vacuum ports" together. I looped the tubing down low where the water was equal heights on both sides of the droop. I tied the tubning together with some wire ties so I could gauge the height of the water in each tube. I started the engine and put a spacer under the throttle to hold it open. Using the water height as a gauge, I adjusted the cable tension on the carbs until the water was even on both sides. I removed the spacer and let the engine idle and leveled the water with the idle adjustments. Done!!!
I took a ride afterwards and the engine ran smoother than it ever did. The difference with synchronized carbs is amazing! If you have dual carbs, you should definately try this. Let me know if you try this with good success.
