I'm not sure I can bend the wire more, but I'll mess with it right now.

I managed to mess around with the wire for long enough that I eventually snapped it. However, I think there's a silver lining. I looked up replacements and found that the current float needles I have appear to be WAY too small to get the job done properly. They're measuring in at 13mm length (including the spring) and have a body of about 3mm by 3mm.

now all I can do is wait and hope the replacements can get the job done. What would we do without amazon?
