10-4 on the business card
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Quite frankly it's almost an exercise in futility to just clean a carb without installing new diaphragms and gaskets .Any more with the amount of ethanol in the gasoline you're lucky to get more than 3-4  years out of them between rebuilds if that long .

Here is the verdict. Got it running and it is doing much better. I had to work on the magneto spacing and used the business card as the gauge. Works great now. Had to adjust the LA a little but other than that, it is back to work in the woodyard. Thanks guys.
