If you order all of these parts and end up not needing a rebuild, then it will be a waste. I would make sure to correct your fuel to air mixture first before breaking down the engine.
will do. however, my clutch never made this noise before and even with the clutch housing plate off and my ear to the case it doesnt seem to be coming from there. but im not buying anything till i get it together with the new carb on.
