So my stuck float was not really a stuck float, it was a melted float. After reading my post on my issues with my carbs Steve generously said to send them back to him and he would look at them and fix them for free. When he got them apart he found the float had been melted and the needle pin was melted to it, so hence me having to order new rings and a float and needle, all had been destroyed.
So you might ask how does one get a melted float?
Well, I had to put in a new fuel elbow, my plastic one was broken and steve let me know I needed a new one so when I got the carbs back from him the first time I picked one up at the local Harley dealer and set about installing it with a friend, well I printed out the instructions from http://www.johnsmotorcycleparts.com/fuel_elbow.htm
and everything went fine until step 10, all we had was a huge torch, and well, we apparently overdid it trying to get the elbow in.
So here is your lesson for today, do not use a torch to install the fuel elbow!
And the other lesson is send your carbs to Steve at www.carbworx.com
, he is an outstanding guy and will get your carbs in like new condition, even if your dumb like me and screw them up and have to send them back.
I hope this helps someone else out there to not make the same mistake I made.
Just for kicks and giggles I have attached a picture of a new float vs a melted float.
