I took the pilot screw out to chane it to a zip-ty and I didnt see the washer. I took it out with the bowl still on. I looked into the hole and didnt see it. I probably dropped it, but is it possible it fell into the bowl?

No, The bowl is isolated from the throat that the screw is accessed from.
Those things are tiny !!
It should have been between the spring and the o-ring. if it came out with the o-ring the washer should have been there too.

well I guess that answers that. I was really mistaken. I was talking about the o-ring washer. I got some #60 o-rings last night to replace it. I hope they work, now Ive got to get a washer because that wasnt there either.

85 percent of the time the washer and o-ring stay inside the carb, unless you beat on the top of it. If your not sure if it came out or not just take the carb off and flip it upside down and use a flashlight to look in the hole.

I've also used a inspection mirror to look up into the carb.
