I am wondering how to find a new float, or are there later models that would work. it runs great but gets too much fuel the float is taking on fuel. Replacement ideas?
Thanks

Tough one....I doubt you'll be able to buy just the float for this carb and making a float work from another carb would be tough and require a lot of skill. You might want to try fixing the float. If you can find where it's taking on fuel perhaps you can patch that hole with an epoxy of some sort that is resistance to gas. The only other option I can think of is to buy another carb. Sometimes you can find them for fairly cheap ($25-$50) on eBay.
