Is anyone familiar with wet setting for a CFAF-F or a C6AF-L 4100?
I feel like I've seen it on this site before; but cant track it down.

Somewhere between 7/8" and 1" N/M

I know most 4100's are somwhere around there; but I thought I read somewhere that these models (mine's stamped C5AF-f on the foot and has a C6af-L tag) were set around 1/2". By eyeball it's about 1/2" right now on the primary and 3/4" on the secondary - all that I've done so far was bench set it to specs.

level is not going to be nearly as high as 1/2". The bench setting is done dry(how else?), but it is only an estimate as to what the fuel level will be once the engine is running. The buoyancy of the float is still an unknown during the DRY setting procedure. I don't have any big car manuals, but the '66 big blocks in the medium size cars all have WET levels between 7/8" and 1".

The c6af-f I ran at Bremerton (see 289 strip times) had 3/4" wet levels. I usually aim for 7/8" wet but left them alone at 3/4". Maybe it will percolate more in the summer but it ran good at the strip and on the drive home.

anywhere between 3/4" and 1" will work, depending on the application. That's actually quite a large range as the factory settings are measured in 32nds.
