The float in a Holley 2-barrel carburetor, including those with a brass float, serves the same purpose as in other carburetors, which is to regulate the fuel level in the carburetor bowl. The float operates by rising and falling with the fuel level in the bowl and opening and closing the needle and seat valve to control the flow of fuel into the carburetor.
Brass floats have the advantage of being more corrosion-resistant than other materials, and they are less likely to be damaged by gasoline or other chemicals. Additionally, brass floats are less prone to swelling or deforming over time, which can affect their ability to regulate the fuel level in the bowl.
APPLICATIONS - You must match your carburetor number to be certain you got the correct float.
