Or can I leave the carb on there and just remove the needle by removing the top only?
Leave it there and remove the top only
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).
you don't mean float needle...but for the needle jet you don't have too. It can be tricky to get it back in the
I think it's called the jet needle, the part with the 6 different clip positions on the needle.
Look at the vid for carb disassembly, needle removal from 3.50 minute mark...
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...
