Float valve removal and operation
[attachment=0]Ok, here is my evening: I decided to boil my float valves to clean them. It worked for the float bowl covers so I figured why not. They were nasty and the floats valves were seized in the float seat. 10-12 minutes of boiling and I was able to pull the valve out. Boil them 5 more minutes of boiling and them I used my advanced cleaning kit. The tooth brush first, Them I used the tooth picks (I figured it would not damage/scratch the seat since it is soft) to remove the thicker stuff. I then finished with the Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol to finish cleaning the inside of the seat.[attachment=1]
