Today I found the safe place I stored the venturi in. Again I scratched my head on the float dampening spring. This float had a mark left by the short leg of the spring which helped.
Everything was going well in that the little spring did not fly away. But I put goofed as you can see in the first image. The float will not fit through that hole in the gasket.
Graphite packing may be getting hard to find. We got this package of graphite packing off the web. Tease out one strand from the rope.
