A quickie hopefully. Just worked on my Holley 2300 2V and replaced the float. I noticed the spring under the float (side mounted) didn't offer much resistance. Do these springs loose elasticity over the years? Should i replace it? The reason I'm wondering is that even after replacing the float and dry setting, the fuel level is still way high.

Thanks - Steve

I don't know about Holleys but I rebuilt an Autolite 2100 and the pictures that came with the kit said some years had a spring like you mention and others didn't. The kit didn't supply a replacement spring so I figured it wasn't very important and left it out.

I did have to adjust the float level a few times after the bowl was full (wet). I had the dry number dead on and it was still way high, enough to overflow the bowl.

The car runs great now and I'm getting 22 MPG on the highway.
