I had to also replace the vacuum cylinder, accelerator pump diaphragm, and the fuel tank screen. almost a full month of order parts, wait, install, order more, wait, install, etc.
Dialing in the pilot mix and the idle stop went easy with a digital tach, the only tricky bit is there isn't much room for a screwdriver to turn the pilot screw, I ended up using a small flat tip hex shank bit in a 6 point socket, which worked well.
She's running well now.

short screwdriver

I didn't have a small blade flathead screwdriver that would fit between the carburetor and the transmission, so....
My "small space to adjust the pilot mix screw" screwdriver solution, a hex shank screwdriver bit taped into an appropriate size 6 point socket, worked very well.

Awesome!! Thanks!!

Now the next problem

I just pulled my carb out of the cleaning dip and "again" tipped it upside down into a bucket. When I picked it up out of the buck these itty bitty washers fell out of somewhere...one is rubber and the other is metal. They look like they could go into "a" or "b" or both (see pictures).

If you don't mind, where did you source those parts from? I've been looking for the cylinder and diaphragm, but everywhere seems to not have it.

My Gen2 part came from https://www.babbittsonline.com/oempa...31c/carburetor


I don't know if a Gen2 vacuum piston will work on a Gen1 carb - anyone know?
