    MY 1400 STARTED THIS FLOODING PROBLEM IN THE REAR CARB...AT IDLE IT
    FLOODS OUT..IF I TURN OFF FUEL LINE IT IDLES OK .THEN GET BACK UP TO
    SPEED AND TURN FUEL LINE BACK ON ...IT WILL FROM TIME TO TIME FLOOD OUT
    IF AT LOW SPEED..DID THE FLOAT BOWL CLEAN OUT..OK..DID THE FLOAT PIN
    ..SEEMS OK..READ WHERE THERE COULD BE A O RING OR VACUMM LINE IN NEED OF
    REPAIR..ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM??

    use a bit of Autosol or Brasso on a Cotton Tip on the needle seat.

    just twist away to get rid of any unwanted gunk
