Will definitely have to play with the needle again then, bump it up one notch probably. I’ll get a new float needle ordered along with some other treats, then change the needle clip and swap the float needle at the same time. After that hopefully I can leave the damn carb alone for more than a week. adding more pics of the carb.
Everything else inside looked pretty good (although again, what do I know). Already ordered carb gaskets and I’ll probably swap out that gasket on the top of the carb where the throttle cable and choke go in, it’s still in one piece but the layers of the material are separating. After the intake gasket I found out cutting them isn’t as easy as I thought.
Thanks again for the follow-ups!
