Thanks everyone. Very helpful explanation as I didn't understand why the piston was like that.

So 2 months later ACTUALLY finally getting around to it, I got the carb back together. A couple questions:

- I was unable to get the accelerator pump inlet ball unstuck. I didn't notice significant problems with the accel. pump when driving before but also it was set too high: at 1-1/2" instead of 1-1/16". Should I expect problems now? If so, how can I get it unstuck? There is a screen blocking the passage to it that I also cannot get out.

- I noticed also the floats did not drop low enough. I corrected it, but I assume it is of no concern...

- What adjustment is it asking me to make here? I don't see anything to adjust on that area of the carb.
