[TR] tr-3 carb float bowl

Does it matter if the float bowls on my SU carbs are not sitting level? I've
installed a later tr-4 header which made it necessary to install a later tr-4
intake manifold which seems to not have the same attachment angle for the SU
carbs as the tr-3 intake manifold did. I've noticed when I installed the
carbs that the bowls now are slightly tipped.
Remembering how important it
is to get the float level set correctly, I'm now wondering if this off-kilter
attachment will affect performance. I've never hear anyone comment on this so
I assume (and hope) not. Any comments?
Also on a related note. Why is the
float level so crucial? It seems that as long as the petrol level is above
the outlet to the carb there should be no problem whether its 1/8th of an inch
from the top or 3/4 of an inch.
