I'm not replacing the carb, just the gasket between the two halves to avoid a vacuum leak since I've compressed the current gasket multiple times now doing float adjustments and passage cleanouts. It just seems prudent.
Guitar string is a good idea. I may pull my old git-fiddle out of the closet and pillage a string off of it next time I do a rebuild/cleanout. Thanks!
