A new one is probably less than $65.00, By the time you find a used on
(if possible) and purchase a rebuild kit and spend time rebuilding i
you could have the new one on and be done with it. Also there is a no
serviceable check valve in that carb., If it's stuck you will hav
wasted money on that used one
If you remove the float bowl and look on the side of the carb. wher
the main jet is you will see another area on the side running the ful
length with what looks like a small BB in the end of it. inside thi
area is a vacuum port area with a small BB inside. When the engine i
not running this BB drops to the bottom and closes a port so you have
rich start-up mixture, Once started the vacuum pulls the BB up to ope
the port for a leaner fuel mixture to run.
If this gets stuck it will cause a rich run condition all the time an
run rough and hunt. I've tried years ago to open one up to clean an
there's no way without destroying the carb. .
