Carb rebuild, not sure if worth it.


When I first put in replacement engine, ran great. Then added carb cleaner to tank, never ran right again.

One guy said cleaner probably broke loose stuff and clogged carb.

Carb removal looks like cables most complicated part.
That black part opposite side of carb to float? Really even need to mess with it?


2 years invested. disheartened

Before I would disassemble , I would put the gauges on it and see how close they are.
I know a guy here in Pensacola he adjusted his carbs, sync'd them then ran seafoam thru the tank. He had adjusted dirty carbs and after the seafoam it was so far out of sync he had to start over.
