My parts should be here soon and I am going to put a new float needle and seat. I read before not to use the clip on the needle. Opinions. It's wd-45 the one that stalls under load. Mike

Yes I am replacing the float. My old float does not leak but I am going to replace it anyway.

The clip is there for a good reason. Most new needles are the rubber tipped type that can/will stick in the seat so the clip is there to keep that from being a problem. Also if you new needle is a rubber tipped one you need to set it so it will seal like it should. To set it you drop it in the seat and tap on it with a screw driver handle etc. When you pull it back out you should see a ring on the tip and that is what is called a set needle
