Re: dirty fuel tank
Ok everyone... here's an update. After talking to Norman, I looked at the wishbone clip in the carburetor and realized that the prongs were uneven. So I bent one clip to match the other clip. Now that I have done this, I haven't flooded out on the carburetor yet. Today will be my second day riding. I will put some miles on it and see how it goes. If nothing goes wrong today I will think that I have my problem solved. Many thanks goes to Norman who gave me the courage to look into the carburetor further (a mechanic, I'm not).
I will update everyone later today and let you know what happens. Yesterday was good and I hope today will be good too.
Wish me luck!
