Ah Shit! All was going too well, until I hooked it up and put gas to it. Gas leaking from the bowl. So, I cut a new gasket and installed. Still leaking. Pulled the carb, and looked at the bottom of the bowl, and I saw a few dark spots. Poked with a pick, and they opened up into big holes all around. Corroded from the inside. Surprisingly, the tank and petcock were clean as a whistle, but the petcock needed a new rubber. I cut one of those, and put it back together with new fuel line. At least it doesn’t leak.

Bummer too, because I was ready to fire it up! I cleaned the points and replaced the plug. Great spark! That’s two out of three- compression, spark, just.need.fuel. So if ya got a float bowl kicking around, hit my inbox. I already posted on B&S.
