What everyons opinion on float height and drop for a W.F vs a 206 .. Im thinking because you can use variable jet size it should not be as big of an issue.

Set it so the float is level or parallel with the gasket surface or a little leaner than that.
Float drop is a non issue.

Jimbo has more experience with the WF than I do, for sure, but I have always set them slightly uphill (about .050" diff. from one end to the other.)
Yes, float drop should not be a concern. (wish that were the case on the newer Briggs 206 carbs)
