Well it wasn't as bad as I thought after all, but I'm glad I had the Chilton and Motor manuals for help. I did have to put the power piston through the gasket a couple of times...forgot to replace the float cover. Reassembled it again, then realized I forgot to put the spring back in. DOH! I didn't find the plate with the cork gasket inside though. Not much info on chokes in the books I have, but I found the Haynes Rochester carb manual today, and looks like its more involved. We'll see. Doug Roe advises not to get into as its too complicated.

BTW Bstmech, you didn't win. I know...its shocking. You owe me a quarter. You can't LIVE in Vegas AND gamble, or you have to rebuild carbs yourself. Oops.
