many times when you are trying to debug a problem, you get stuck on one thing, and keep checking it over and over, saying to yourself "this has to work" but its not working.
If you think you have adjusted the bendy tab thing correctly, and its not, and you bend it some more and its still the same, then you have something else going on (like the float is not seated correctly and its hanging up, or you are missing a shim or a spacer...)
If the level is that high would the fuel go out the overflow tube? That something to check. If the float is just stuck open for some other reason you can adjust it all day long, and it will never close.
are the front and rear carbs identical? (I would think they are) but is it possible you got parts from one in the other?
