I cleaned the carb and am putting it back together but I am unsure were this goes. Is it a check under the accelerator pump nozzle bolt?
Thanks

Yes, it is the pump discharge needle check

Pointed end down, before the nozzle assembly is installed. This part inhibits air from moving backwards in the fuel passage when the accelerator pump is moving up. The intent is for the pump to refill with liquid by lifting the check ball at the bottom of the well.

For the idle adjustment screws per each primary bore. How many turns out is a good place to start?
Thanks

1-1/2 to 1-3/4 is a reasonable starting point. Use of gauge reading intake manifold vacuum is the easiest way to get a precise final adjustment.

I'm in the process of doing this right now. I'm almost done and lots of good advice here so thanks everyone. My one question is what do I set the float level at ? It's a Daytona kit for a WGD carb and it states how to adjust and where to measure but it doesn't give a dimension and I can't seem to find anything.It also has 3 different thickness gaskets for the float needle and seat assy ?

Thanks

I bought from Daytona too. Mine had a folded up piece of paper that had the information on it.

Why don't you just use the phone and call Daytona and ask them? I've always found them very ready and willing to help.

Grandmaspackard;

In the ‘Packard Literature and Manuals’ section of this site is a tune-up manual for the 23th series cars. In that document are the float level values for the various WGD carburetors. Remember the Daytona (if that’s what you have) style ‘needle and seat’ adjust the float level by shimming the seat. The instructions that came with the kit will cover this in detail.

Do not bend the tang on the float to achieve the correct float level on a flat disk style fuel shut-off valve (aka needle and seat). The design intent is to achieve the correct float level and have the float tang make contact with the center of the valve.

I believe the instructions will state that the float level is measured with the gasket removed, but double check that before you proceed.
