As a point of reference, changing the float levels from 25.7mm to 24.7mm will richen everything overall. As you are having a problem with it being too rich, try resetting the floats again, but this time to 27.7mm Use that as a starting point, being aware that it may actually make things too lean. Start with that, adjust the pilot screws using the "colortune by ear" method, and see where you're at.

Be very careful with that expoy-repaired float post!
