It needs to be as close as possible and the feed line of the tank needs to be more or less level with the needle valve as shown below…..

Too high, the engine will flood, too low it will run lean. Its not super critical to get it exact as the tank will be pressurised using exhaust pressure but it all helps and on this model there was tons of room to adjust it. Might be different on your Tiggie……
