Breath Of Fresh Air

For this type of thing to be useful to the amature mechanic you really need pictures to illustrate each step

I've put the float in upside down on a Mikuni carb. You wouldn't think it was physically possible, (never mind intellectually) but it is. I've done it Twice! The second time I realised why it was leaking quite quickly. The first time, not.Many people don't have compressed air available. I've found boiling a gungy carb in water (with some detergent) shifts a lot of the crap, and a 5 or 10 ml syringe (preferably the type with a screw-on hypodermic needle) makes a good micro-pressure-wash for the jet passages.  Watch that needle though. As Neil Young points out, it can do some damage.
