No prob, It looks like a cool bike and I'm just throwing ideas out there. You are right about the needle and float assembly for sure. If the two are put together properly and installed in the carb then the float would have to be in right side up. I just know that if you are assembling the carb upside down on the bench it would be possible to drop the needle in the seat and then put the float down on top of the needle which of course would be the wrong way to do it but that would make it possible to install the float upside down. See what I am saying? It was just a thought and it sounds like it is probably something else weird going on. Good luck with it though.
