By following a series of processes, you can rebuild the small carburetor in about an hour and leave the hard-earned cash in your pocket by doing it yourself.
Remove the carburetor from the small engine using the correct settings
Size Allen wrench.
Place the carburetor on a hard, flat surface covering several layers of newspaper.
Some of the gas may leak from the intake tube and the newspaper absorbs the wrong liquid.
Observe that there are two removable covers on the opposite side of the house.
One cover has four small screws and the other has only one large screw in the middle of the thick aluminum cover.
Remove four small screws from the carburetor housing using a small jeweler screwdriver.
Install the small cover and screws together to the side of the work area.
Using the sharp edge of the pock knife, carefully pry the rubber fuel pump gasket from the surface.
You can put this part aside for the time being.

Use the knife again to pry the rubber gasket off the shell.
Note that a small needle valve is placed under the gasket with a small plate and a smaller Philips head screw.
Using a small jewelry screwdriver, remove the fixing screw for the fixing needle valve.
When you pull the plate out of the shell with a small needle nose thin claw pliers, be aware that there is a very small spring under the plate.
This spring is not included in the rebuild kit, so don\'t release it.

Please note that there is a small screen under this area with a diameter of about 3/8.

Before assembling the reconstruction kit back into the carburetor, allow the carburetor to be completely dry.
