    X2 .. and it's even worse in a car/vehicle/engine which isn't used daily or regularly... seems when the stuff 'sits' is when it does the damage...

    You are preaching to the choir, that comment was for the know it all, its an equal opportunity destroyer.

    Carbureted engines are a tiny fraction of the engines in use today.....and shrinking.
    Sure. But still have the Holley 670 on the stock 327 in my wifes 59 Apache, and that sucker just dries up in a week or so if not driven. Then leaves the needle sticky, which causes the floats to stick "open" and thus pours gas out the side of the carb eventually. Have fixed it several times. Just need to drive the truck more often so it won't evaporate and dry out. (that's the moral of the story).
