Ben, we mostly collect camping stuff. Although someone here just might know the answer to your question.

Is it safe fo say you are working on a fuel flow carburetor for a oil fired heater? That is what came up when I Googled 240 yrc. In genreal some floats do have the needle "attached" usally by a little hook that clips on the end of the needle. But my experience is only with gasoline engine carburetors,

Yes, It is gravity feed oil heater. It was half full of ice. When I dug out the ice
and blow it out the needle dropped out and I could not see anything thing that tied
if to the float.

Anyone own a Coleman 240YRC Service Manual?

How do you connect the float and the Needle together?

Hi Ben and Brian - I have no actual knowledge of the heaters, so don't trust me - but this is gravity feed: if the needle sits above the float, no connection to the float is needed, and the bottom face of the needle would just ride on the top face of the float.
Do you have pictures so I can find out just how wrong I am?  <grin>

I could probably figure out how it all goes together if I could see it in person.. I'm mechanically gifted like that.. like reassembling a wind-up 8mm film camera I found in a box...

Well I'm trying to figure out how the pin and the float fit together.. I 'think' the 2 tabs lift up on  the pin holder, but I'm also trying to figure out how the pin lines up with the hole so there is access to the slot in the pin for adjustment purposes.. Are there any Patent #s on the lid to the regulator?
