Re carb problems
I personally think having a good quality inline fuel filter installed can go a long ways towards preventing carb issues. A stuck float valve is (my understanding) usually sediment debris related. I bought the 90 degree inline filters that Eagle Mike sells... no pic on his site but they look like this: http://clarkemfg.com/visufilter-inli...led-p-348.html
I'd be surprised if these aren't available locally somewhere.
