So in a previous thread (under silencer packing) i showed my carb overflow leaking. I pulled the carb off and discovered 2 things right off.
1st - the gasket for float bowl was broken (not by me, i took it apart very very slowly. but it wasn't the source of leak, it was leaking, but the overflow was also leaking cause i wiped the carb down, and within 10 seconds the overflow at bottom of carb had a drop, and sides of carb seemed dry)
2nd - the little fuel screw that is red, going into the carb, that was turned all the way in. if you turned it out a little bit, it was very very loose. It was almost like the spring in there wasn't keeping pressure on it, which i assume is why it was turned all the way in.
I pulled the float off, and took the float needle out, and looked at the rubber stop on it, it doesn't seem to bad to the untrained eye of myself. But the copper piece of whatever that it stops in, was questionable, i dont know what i'm looking at here so i took pics for you all. I'm hoping to get greyracer and a few others of you to make suggestions. The bike popped when letting off, but ran up thru the power quite good, no stutters, etc.
Should i attempt cleaning, doing something with this carb, or should i just send it to zipty racing, to have it modded, cleaned, fixed, etc. ? I'm very novice when it comes to carbs. i know some of the parts names. etc, main jet, blah blah. But i do not know how they function really, and stuff like that in depth. And i'm not quite sure how to set the float lvl. In the old bikes i had, you just bent a little piece and it adjusted the floats lol.
Anyways here are some pics. let me know what you all think!
