So wrong would be the answer.

If the float is adjusted too high it will raise the fuel level inside the float bowl and this can cause a rich condition.
Also if there is any debris caught in the float needle valve between the needle and seat the valve can no longer stop the fuel flow when it reaches the proper level. This too will cause a rich condition as well as flooding and overflow when the engine is turned off.
thanx man ill lower it and see if that does tha trick
