I've searched the archives here (I promise), yet I can't be sure. I've got a 77 sachs hercules. I'm having some problems with it--gas leaks, 4 cycling- so I take apart the carb, and I find the thing that 'floats' in the gas is all banged up. (This is the thing that pivots on one end, pushing a pin up. This is the float, yes?) My question is, how the hell does that happen? can 24 years just, umm, bang up floats like that?
And how could it possibly cost 20 bucks plus shipping to replace a little piece of metal with no moving parts like that? Resigned sigh
