He's probabley refering to the fuel pump check valve assembley .FWIW the soft parts of the carb just get stiff from old age or ethanol .There's nothing you can  do except replace them .

I've probabley rebuilt in excess of 100 saw carbs and never once seated a fuel shut off valve .Fact I've seldom ever replaced them .I seldom even buy the complete rebuild kits ,usually just the basic kit with the soft parts .
