Default Hairy Carburetor

My Reid starved for fuel the day before yesterday, so I finished the run on propane. I took the carburetor apart yesterday, and the the main fuel needle had two horse hairs in it! How it the world?! It's shedding season all right enough. My daughter won't even go with me without wearing goggles, but the engine?

Thought this might amuse some folks.


(Runs fine now.)
