The best way

I've found to check the action of the drop tangs is before you put the bowls on just lift the carbs up and rock them front to back and watch to make sure the floats don't hang up on the posts. If the tangs aren't set right, the float will stick on the bottom of the post. The comments on trimming the bowl gaskets and making sure the fuel and vent t's are clear are also standard procedure for these carbs.
