I use25mm from the bare surface. Make SURE all 8 floats are the same! Sometimes you need to work on it to get them all the same. Also, before you button it up, rotate the carb bank so the floats are down and then back up. Look as yoou do this for anyplace a float may hang up on something.
I ALWAYS mount the bank upside down and try to put some fuel into it, just to make sure there is no seeping or leaks. Lift each float slightly until you see gas, let go and on to the next. Leave for about 3 minutes to verify no more fuel is escaping from anyplace, like the seat "O" ring on the new carbs.
