Having a small issue with this carb. When I turn the petcock (new one) "on" gas flows and 2 seconds later its out the overflow at a steady pace. When I shut the gas off and unscrew the drain screw on carb the bowl is empty. What I have done:
-Cleaned carb including needle seat w/toothpaste and Q-tip
-Re-installed float and needle then put a tube on the gas inlet and blew while slowly raising the float and it stops (this why I am confused)
The needle looks mint and there is no holes in float. Now, there is a little "button" on top of the float needle and was wondering what that does, mine springs back when pushed down.
Before this it would start and run with throttle going at all times, throttle screw pretty much all the way out or it would die but would start up a minute or two later. The idle was wacky so I sprayed (carb cleaner) checking for air leaks and when I did the bowl the idle shot down and it died out. That's when I bought the gasket kit. Now, I have this issue....flooding ugh! I must be missing or not checking something so that's why am asking for help. (edited)
