I think you're onto something here. Looking at the image of the needle valve ...seems to have some that vacuum cling on it that may have sloughed off when exposed to gasoline. Danny can you verify that by looking at the needle? @Racer65 May be interested in this and should consider pulling a new carb apart to check this.Where I come from wee condoms aren’t generally found in fuel. As a newer supplier that many of us have bought from, including myself, how bout a simply apology and acknowledge that your stuff has its flaws as well. Nothing is perfect. That crap looked exactly like the a vacuum like cling that should have been peeled off and was missed. The many who have bought your desmog carb rav about them, they are magic to our old beasts.
