#3 carb may be the 'master', but it IS evil! The notorious one for gasket catching internally on float, and float bowl not getting precisely seated in recess prior to tightening.......DAHIK

yep. I have a set from my F on the bench that I tore down and cleaned a dozen times. Did the air check to see if the needles were sealing, cut the gaskets back, put everything together leak, leak, leak. Start over go through it all again and again and again. Eff it, bought another set. I have been tempted to use the set on the bench as a hammer but I'll figure them out before it's all over
