The butterfly on this carb has a very weak spring and I noticed that the butterfly would snap closed when observed from the side as gravety helped pull the flap closed but when in the mounted position the butterfly did not move to closed. This was missed in the cleaning and the varnish could be heard with a squeek when manually working the flap. After another soaking in carb cleaner and manual manipulation at least 100 times the flap was better but not perfect. I guess 21 years of abuse has taken it's toll and varnish will come off in layers. It is easy to see why some give up and buy a new carb
