Yes, thats the correct place to measure, but you need to hold it sideways so that it doesn't compress the spring loaded needle. Tip it sideways with the float pivot pin at the top. Tilt the carb till the float just bumps against the needle. Not sure on spec. Don't have my Clymer here with me.

Yeah kinda figured as the gasket is a few mm itself and yes my floats were off a few mm as I wasnt sure about the spring loaded needles and compressing them or not i have got it running pretty good and the floats are at 21mm now Thanks !!
