The next time you change your guitar strings, save about four inches from each gauge. They are excellent carb port cleaners. And don't forget the teeniest holes in the side of the main nozzle, in addition to the jet. They are hard to spot when plugged, about 1/64".
Yes tanglefoot but we don't have an acoustic piano in the house 🙂 And piano gauges aren't wound (wrapped) until the sizes are too large for carb work. I find the smaller wound guitar strings are like teeny, gentle rat-tail files.
I simply MUST become a convert to that church! In fact, I'm currently designing the t-shirt that I'm gonna order to give each of my children for Christmas this year,,, 😄
It's a good idea to keep another new, replacement snowblower carb on the shelf. I've had the cheap ones die after a year or two, even with proper winterization. It's a small investment, and if you're like me, you won't know the snowblower won't start until there's a foot of snow in the driveway.
I think you may want to look at doing an edit, Rob. When talking about the cost of the available non-ethanol fuels in your area like race fuel and AV-GAS, you refer to "inexpensive regular-octane pump" gas. I think you accidentally left out the word RELATIVELY in front of that term. 'Cause I'm pretty doggone sure that you don't really think (or expect us to) that regular pump gas is "inexpensive". 🤣
