Must have gotten an extra spring in the kit, the spring goes into the needle and then the pin goes on top


Alot of these older carbs warp over time from people over tightening the bowl screws , I found a simple solution to this which is put a small dab of JB weld on the carb where you can see an opening, the remove simply wire wheel it off.  Been doing that for years on these.

It's back together with a splash of JB Weld.  Started right up, and drove around the yard.  I might have a tiny seep from the driveshaft seal into the gear box, but I'll wait and see.  


I gave it a shot of grease, and will change the oil next week.  


Now to find a plow, and maybe a blower, and get the gratis deck cleaned up and working.


Thank you all for all of your help.  I'm sure I'll be back with questions in the future.
