Sometimes backplates have the stem where the needle threads into a bit proud from the brass housing. Others are flush. The hole that allows the fuel to flow through would be higher or lower depending on the stem height.

Does this position really matter?

Just wondering getting a few backplates running a bit irregular and wondered if this might be it?

Thanks

Babe Bee backplates? I don't think it makes a difference. Replacing the spring with a piece of silicone and a small flat washer helps eliminate air leaks. I have pulled numerous needle valve inserts from backplates and see little difference in length. When rebuilding my engines I use a small drill bit or pin to ensure the fuel nipple is not clogged. You can see the pin protruding into the insert with the needle removed. I also found a few engines bought on the 'bay with broken needle valve tips stuck in the backplate. Guaranteed not to run. Hope this helps.

When purchasing a tank backplate from us it is inconceivable that the hole is at the wrong height or not pointing towards the fuel nipple as the spraybars are manufactured without a hole, pressed into the shaft of the backplate and then drilled through via the fuel nipple.
