I'm finishing up a 2 circuit 80186-1 and I have a nitrophyl float to put in. I noticed that my current carb has one with no spring. Is that the common practice with this float?

FWIT, I always run the springs too. And if you don't have any, then either Nomad here on the board or BPTcarbs on fleabay sell those pretty cheap. That's one of those items that I keep "in stock" for this very reason. ;-)

I called BLP and Mark said to run the spring. I asked him why some builders don't use them and he said he didn't know, but that it would flood without the spring. Ken Jones did my 9375 without the spring and it doesn't flood. I put the 80186-1 together with the spring.

Tuner told me to run the springs too. I think he said it would stabilize the float some and if I'm not mistaken he said to bend it to get it to the point where it barely lifted the float off the bottom of the bowl. I know for sure he would tweak them but don't remember what he said to shoot for.

The stronger the spring the more the fuel level drops relative to the float drop. A strong spring forces a lower fuel level and a more closed N&S.
