one poor guy to another

the carb:sounds like gunk stuck under the float,the tank is a litte bit of work but basically free I always pull the tank rinse it really well with a steam cleaner or garden hose then I dump like 4,5 jars of navel jelly(dont wince)and 2 hand fulls of CLEAN gravel now shake the heck out of the tank until everything is broke loose in the tank dump all the junk out of the tank and rinse it out when it is rinsed out good RINSE IT SOME MORE!!! dumpa jar of rubbing alcohol in it swish it around to absorb any water left over dump it out and bolt it up.I know it sounds crazy but ive probably done 20 and never had a problem.
