The suggestion to adjust so the float body is parallel to the bowl gasket area upside down works. Don't worry about it being to the millimeter, as long as the bowl contains about 4 to 4-1/2 ounces of fuel, the tractor will run fine.

Having designed a few things, I think about how the engineer might have designed the carburetor. So, a little trick I use in adjusting floats when I can't find the spec is to hold the carburetor upside down, bowl off, bowl-to-carb gasket joint horizontal. Then I adjust the float level to be horizontal, that is parallel to the bowl-to-carb gasket joint. This almost always results in the float level being to spec.
