When it is all apart put the two carburetor half back together without a gasket and see if the top half is warped. If it is you might have to straighten it out. If any air leaks between the top half and bottom will definitely affect the performance of the carburetor. Make sure you don’t over torque the reassembly of that top cover….remember you are screwing into and working with…..aluminum (soft metal)!

The swearing thing reminded me of something I heard a long time ago
An older preacher had moved into a new town to take over a church. Standing on his front porch he noticed that the yard was getting over grown when down the road there came a young boy pushing a lawn mower. The preacher called out to him and asked if he could buy his mower. The young man ask him what he would give him for it. The preacher said I have a bicycle I will trade for it. The young man said yes, in a flash he was through the gate standing with the preacher. Preacher asked does this mower run, and the young man answered sure does, then its a deal said the preacher. Later when he was ready to cut his grass he pulled and pulled on the start rope but no start, as he looked up he sees the young man riding the bike down his way, so he call for him to come over. The old preacher asked the boy how do you get this thing to start, he answers you have to cuss it. Cuss it he answers I haven't cussed for more than thirty years, I don't remember how to cuss, and the young man said just keep pulling on that rope it will come back to you.
