If you're just trying to break the float needle assy. loose, just soak the bottom of the carb. Maybe pour some penetrating fluid down the fuel inlet.

FYI....the slide is very very easy to take out. If you have ever opened the top to mess with your needle, there is a screw in there holding the slide to the throttle shaft. Take out screw and slide lifts right out. Simple. Just keep it together as it is a few pieces and put back in the same way. It's not rocket science

1. As mentioned, any rubber or plastic will be ruined. There is plenty in there!
2. Some soaking carb cleaners are extremely corrosive and could damage the delicate parts.
3. I've heard stories for folks soaking their carb and when removed, it was decomposing and useless.
Unless the carb was filled with salt water and left for years or totally trashed in some other way, typically you can just remove all the jets, spray WD40 into the openings to ensure they are clear and reassemble.
Follow these simple step by step instructions or take it to a Professional.

IF it is not flooded, your problem may be with the choke circuit, an air leak in the intake system or something with the ignition. You'll need to troubleshoot.
