Ok So I went ahead and took the carb apart tonight the cleaner I added to the tank made some difference but.... I was really worried about doing damage to the engine.
So i too some carb cleaner and poured it out into a container and cleaned all the parts in it. The float was fine so here is a pick of the junk that was living in my carb
I put on a better inline filter, I had a small red one from Canadian tire but I think that on was junk!
i used the Fram one from Walmart the i bought in Massena NY about three weeks ago for just such and occasion.
Thanks guys for the help I will test in the AM I hope i sealed it all back up tight enough.
Mustering no vapor leaks please.
