So it turns out that I had my carb diaphragm issue completely backwards: the carb with the slide that snapped back quickly was the bad one with 3 vertical tears in the diaphragm. The other diaphragm...

So now that I understand what is going on (had it backwards) I inspect what I thought was my old/good diaphragm and it has 3 big slits in it. Totally fubar'd. I guess the one thought was bad (see...
