I wonder if you may have the wrong type of float bowl lids on your 
carburetors. The HS types have a hinged float. The float chamber also has a 
small plastic line out of the bottom that is part of the primary jet 
assembly. This is the most obvious identification feature of the HS type. 
Cancel that thought. The HS has three screws holding on the top, whereas the 
H and HD are held on with a single banjo fitting down the center. I guess 
that it would be possible to simply install the free floating floats from an 
H or HD into the HS float chamber and substitute the pivot and needle 
assembly also, rather than use the proper hinged float. However, I cannot 
imagine why someone would do that??? If that is the situation, it should be 
relatively easy to restore then to the proper HS type of floats and float 
needle mechanisms.
