MG MGA - Float bowl spacers

Hi all.
I totally agree with Barney, when he states that we under normally
conditions don't need to raise the float level by inserting spacers between the float bowl and the lid. BUT on my 1622 engine where the bowls are fitted to the carb body by studs and not by banjo bolts, it is not possible to get the fuel level even near to 1/8" below the jet, even when I have adjusted the fork to a little less than 5/16".

Wonder if any body else have managed to get the fuel levet right
without any mods to the float bowl lid?
