I just can't tell for sure which side of the flange the drip is forming from (engine or pipe).
So far I've set all my float levels(tangs) about 3/32(about 2.5 mm) from where gasket seats,,or bottom of the carb housing and they run great with no leaks.Last kit I got the float level was way too low so I bent the tangs up before I even tried to start it for the first time.Ive read somewhere around here that guys set them even a little closer like 1/16th.that seems a little to high too me,,plenty of fuel in the bowl the way I do it.
