Posted ImageI was cleaning out my floatbowl last night and had the carb in my hand and a screw and washer fell down out of the carb. , there was no small o-ring but a large o-ring around the screw itself up on the shaft( sunline screw) I believe they came out of the fuel screw hole.

my question would be should i put the washer in the hole in the carb then the spring and then put the screw in the hole?

here is a pic of the washer and screw

to add,,, the oring on the screw shaft is to provide some friction to prevent the screw from vibrating out.
