I did not change the starter valve. Was going to and I ordered a new one but the choke on this works perfect so...the new one is on the shelf for now.

Thanks for the help everyone!

If I can clean a carb, anyone can. I'm cheering you on!

One word of advice: Be very gentle with the screws that hold the bowl on the carb. They are easily stripped if you use the wrong sized screwdriver or twist them too firmly. And, don't screw them back down too tightly. I used anti-seize on mine.

If the outside is grubby like mine was spray it down with Deep Creep like i said in my carb thread. No need for carb cleaner at this point. Brush and Wipe down the body to try and get as much off as you can. You’re waiting for parts right? Perfect.
spray every screw head and stick the whole carb in the freezer—cold helps the oil to penetrate. put it in a plastic bag though—you don’t want it smelling like food lol.

retro Berrymans B-12 Chemtool in the can works great too! They sell it as carb & choke cleaner in aerosol cans and fuel injector cleaner liquid in a pint/20 oz can. I use both types for routine cleanings. If they're grungy or corroded they get dipped in Berrymans for a couple days though.

Most of that junk behind the primer plunger probably was shed/crumbled off from the diaphragm as it slowly rots. Now, if you try to reuse that old plunger, be prepared to watch it leak!

shadetree once totally apart, I just use some brushes, and gum-out carb cleaner, and a ton of scrubbing !. make sure no rubber parts are on the carb !.

Budweiser Got the carb out. Gonna wait for parts to arrive before I go any further. I did push the primer plunger and see the fuel spray out!! kinda cool, can see how that works!

Silly question...after I get this apart, can I soak the body of carb in kerosene to clean it up? The outside is filthy. Or should I should use carb cleaner, a toothbrush and rag and air to clean it. Not sure if kerosene would harm anything. I would not use it on anything rubber.

wont be in the idle jet, he said it idles great when he cranked it up. main jet yes, idle jet..no.
