Timmy, you're putting too much trust in human nature. Most people who say they have rebuilt a carburetor mean that they took it apart and replaced the gaskets. Most gearheads are carburetor-ignorant. You will be an exception to the rule. I can see you soaking all the parts in a can of carb cleaner, blowing out all the passages with compressed air and doing all the things that your new factory service manual tells you to do. There's a good lad......
