Do I need to remove the carb in order to change float needle clip positions?

Recommended Posts

Or can I leave the carb on there and just remove the needle by removing the top only?

Thank you! :)

 

Do I need to drain it first?

Nope, no need to drain.

 

I would suggest putting a white towel under the carb on top of the engine/starter motor to make a good work area and to catch anything (like the little oring... if it is a Mikuni).

I think it's called the jet needle, the part with the 6 different clip positions on the needle.

Slide jet needle not float needle.  Both the jet needle and the float valve can be changed with the carb in place.  Your jet needle has no alternate clip positions unless it is an after market replacement.

I believe Dave has got a JD jet kit...
