I rebuilt my Autolite 2100 this weekend in the driving snow and freezing cold. After I got it all back together I wanted to check the float level so I pulled the coil wire and cranked it over. I had a gas volcano with gas shooting out of the vents, very spectacular.

I think I forgot to hook the spring to the valve seat when I did the dry float setting. I was too cold to do any more so I pushed it into the garage.

Could this cause a gas geyser?

PS The reason I do it without starting the motor now is because of my flaming Mopar/Holley incident of the early 80's.

If the little spring for the float is not hooked around the
back of the brass fuel inlet it will allow the neddle to come
straight up out of its seat. Thus the gas gusher. Make
sure the spring is clipped in place.
