    '65 CA77 carb floats don't hold air....bummer.

    They do hold a certain amount of gas, though.

    I had the same problem with one on the 72 cl175. Bought a brand new set off of ebay. Just make sure you look them over before buying, some are just a little different.

    OMG C.C.C., that's great ! The first one I found was from "Carburetor Capital of USA, Untited States", with very pretty women standing by to take my order ! I almost hit "Buy Now" ! Heh. Gotta love Fleabay.
    Thanks !

    Yeah, that first set looked like the ticket. while I'm waiting for the floats to get here I thought I should check the oil spinner. The oil on the dipstick looks like new, but if it's straight weight non detergent , might all be on the bottom, right ? So I'm going round the horn tapping on the screwdriver shocking the screws. No dice. Get out the hand impact driver. No dice. I quit. Thought I'd give them 24hrs. To think about it. Think I'm going to try the 1/4" electric impact driver next.

    Make sure you're using a JIS bit or you'll be chiseling out (or drilling the heads off) the screws later... I've had a Vessel JIS t-handle for decades and recently bought a Motion Pro JIS t-handle as well (with all 3 JIS bit sizes, magnetic), and you'd be amazed at how much torque you can apply to the case screws with the proper-fitting bit and t-handle. I like the look of the OEM case screws and when you have the right tool, they're easy to keep and use
