needle retaining spring 7 Months ago  
The little spring that holds the needle on has refused to be cooped up in such a confining dark space and made its escape after jumping out of my fat fingers. Anyway, I would have to order the whole needle kit that I don't need. I figure a ball point pen spring would work just fine since it is just holding the needle down.

How long is this spring? anyone have one handy to measure?

7/16"
Fortunately I had my tank off today and I can almost pull the carb apart blind folded.

Just in case it has a 1/8th hole in it that sits down on the needle clip without going over the clip. That lets the needle move up and down about 1/8th inch after it is installed on the 4th groove
