Tim: Thanks for the helpful response. Before I started my carb adventures earlier this week, I set both the Marvel and the Zenith using the directions you've posted above. When the Marvel started giving me problems, I took it apart hoping there was a very obvious problem that my untrained eye could detect - like a piece of gunk somewhere. There was a tiny piece of what looked like sealant at the bottom of the main mixture needle, which I removed, but it didn't help matters.

Is there a good way to see if the floats are set right? When I took the carburetor apart they didn't look bent. I have an IT manual that says they should be 1/4 inch from the surface of the throttle body. Does that sound correct? (BTW, my fuel shut-off valve from the gas tank is working as it should)

I very much appreciate your offer to take a look at the carburetors. I'm also thinking about buying a completely new, good quality one from a reputable vendor (not Amazon this time!). Do you have any recommendations if I decide to go that route?
