Sorry to double-post!
I got the carb off, easy part right?
Nothing exploded or went wrong...
Kinda. I'll get to that.
With the gas tank off I took it as a chance to go ahead and rinse it, I know, before people start screaming "YOU RINSED IT?!!!" it was already rusted, but oh man I was NOT expecting all these particles and stuff to come out. It took 5 rinses to get all that crap out. I want to use some Evapo-rust on it, but I have no idea how to seal the tank so it doesn't leak, the petcock and the cap. Does anyone have any suggestions? https://imgur.com/cA5rhjW
However, I noticed something! My petcock was still draining! I turned it to off and double checked three times but it still kept dribbling out the water...
Hmmm, maybe a new petcock is in order?
Anyway, pulling the carb was easy. Except I have this black line that I have no idea of where its supposed to go.https://imgur.com/oFTibh5
annnnd I sort of ripped my drain hose...
So a new drain hose is in order too.https://imgur.com/GTcanTT
On inspection though the carb looks clean. I haven't taken it apart, gonna save that for tomorrow so I'm hoping my luck carries me through!
