guru, naw, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn the other night..
I would not soak
that in carb-cleaner. It will EAT the seals out..
If you have no
weeping outside at the throttle shaft on either side that the butterfly attaches to. Leave it alone
But if it is weeping outside there then new seals should be used. Replacement is not difficult. The return spring is something to be mindful of tho.. I never soak these carbs..
I just spray em with carb-kleen & blow dry..
Kerosene by hand is fine..Don't use Ur parts washer fluid. That's dirty.. Then blow out all passages thoroughly..
Put your float in a pan of liquid & see how boyant it still is..Should be fine. Correct Float level is important.
Be careful if you still have the black plastic elbow for gas inlet line, they break easy.. But replacement in Brass elbow is always a good up-grade, (if needed.) If you have to change this shoot me a PM. It's not hard, but kinda tricky..
The shut off needle has a tiny wire clip on it looped over a tang off the float. Make sure you see how it attaches so you can put it back correctly, + it's in the Book.
At the float hinge, the carb body will have an embossed arrow
pointing which way to push out the hinge-pin.. & re-assemble accordingly..
If you should need any hard-parts, I have them..
Take yer time, it'll be fine.. Be sure to use a new carb to intake rubber seal ....I use liquid dish-soap (Dawn) on this seal, so assembly is easy & doesn't damage the rubber, & you can safely move carb around during re-assembly. First heat will dry out the soap..
Also might be good time to replace the Vacuum line from carb to VOES switch. Careful on the switch
,it is plastic also..& likely brittle.. I usually use a razor to carefully slice line at switch to aid in easy removal..& dish soap to ease install.
Perfect time to replace Gas Line also..
For more detail should you need..shoot me a PM. Billy
