Like you I try to stick with OEM parts for everything. Unfortunately the old floats often have brass rot where the metal has just dissolved over time in spots causing them to fill up. I have saved one by using some fuel tank epoxy on the visible holes, but it only lasted for a couple of years before coming off. One might try to solder them, but I worry that will destroy some of the joint solder.

I also seem to have poor luck with needle valves leaking-I prefer original fully steel ones, but most have rubber tips. I would not buy an new carb for anything.
