Thanks JJ, Forgive my need for detail, but I've done some STUPID stuff cause I didn't know better. Are you talking about the bottom can containing the spring and balls? What will I need to clean it with, and what is ok to lube it with? I've got machine oil, motor oil (10w30) regular grease, lithium grease.Remove the bottom can on the float spool and clean and lube it.
When you reassemble, make sure the bolts/nuts are tight.
