Strange, the people are correct . At 2.5 psi of fuel pressure , the needle should remain on the seat.

The correct initial float setting , if the nut is grabbing the adjustment collar, would only allow fuel to drip out the bowl when the carb is knocked on the side.

If it is operating in some rough idle or hill area adding a spring in the needle and seat will help close it to maintain float height.
