Question Swamp Cooler Floater

I have an older model swamp cooler hooked to the outside of the house. Because of my fathers passing this is my first year to set it up and get it ready. I have it figured out for the most part, but I am stuck on where to hook up the float device. My mother thinks it goes on the water line to somehow turn the water off when it gets to full. I believe it screws to the side of the cooler and in essence lets the excess water drip out when it is over full. Neither one of us are sure we are right, and I can't find anything online to tell me. If it does somehow hook up to the waterline going into the cooler, how and where? If it doesn't where does it go and how does it work? Please help! We are sweating to death!

Older swamp cooler

The float goes on the inside of the unit. Its function is to control the water level in the pan.The float assembly is attached thou. the side of the case (should have a small hole to mount it on) Attach the inlet tube to the out side the float. adjust the float so the water shuts off before the water reaches the overflow pipe.

PS it does not let out excess water. It shut off the water from filling up to far
