This should help. Notice the base of the carb is vertical.

It is an important adjustment and pretty touchy. Here is what I do. I put a hose on the inlet and clamp the carb in a vice only tight enough you can rotate it in the vice. Then I blow in the hose and slowly rotate the carb until my breath is cut off when the needle and seat JUST close. There is you float height. Now measure and adjust as necessary.
