As some of you know I have recently restored this motor. When I got it from my uncle a few years ago, he insisted the carb was clean because he went through it. I could run this motor in a bucket, but always had to be adjusting the mixture nobs and the choke to keep it running. I finally got sick of this and decided to rebuild the carberator. I bought the kit from here at iboats and THEN when out and started disassembling the linkages etc. I was really surprised when I found a cork float in there, which leads me to believe my uncle did not rebuild this carb. In fact the high and low speed needs are absolutely coated in varnish......as is much of the carb. All the o-rings etc are eaten away........its a wonder it ran at all. I have the whole thing apart now and soaking in some carb cleaner......waiting to be blown out with the air compressor.
I ordered the kit before realizing the float needs to be replaced as well. What part number is the float? Can it be boat seperately?.....or am I looking at buying a different kit from somewhere else. I have seen a few kits but it isnt specific as to whether a float comes with it. Any help would be much appreciated.
Here are a few pics so you all know what this carb looks like.....
