Hello. I'm still Chilling, but your experience mirrors my own. I'm sure you have learned a lot about these carbs, but my point in my earlier post is that it is not economically practical to spend much on the repair of this type of equipment. You said in an earlier post you had at least 20 hours of your time on this equipment. I bet at minimum wage plus parts your have $250 invested in this. I hope you get it running, but even if you do you have a lot invested in a used piece of equipment. My equipment is in nice shape, fairly new and starts and runs well not because I have extra money to throw about but just the opposite. I can't afford equipment that is giving me problems. I do completely understand the "I'm not going to let it beat me" attitude tho.
