One last note, once you get the rebuilt carb back in place you can use baby "snot suckers" to prime your now empty bowls (as opposed to cranking the engine over and over again to get fuel in there).

Take off the breather and shoot some fuel up into the J tubes with one of these. Turn the key, and enjoy.

Good tip. Used to use "booger basters" to fill through the sight plug hole on automotive carbs but never thought to go through the J tubes.

That brass piece comes out! It has an o-ring on both ends. However, my kit did not include the o-rings for it so be careful or replace them with o-rings you can find locally.

Mine runs great after the rebuild!

Replacing old o-rings is very important. If you didn't get them in your rebuild kit, either they missed putting them in (unlikely but possible) or you had the wrong kit.
