I need the little needle and spring that goes between the float and the valve for the float mechanism. I (stupidly) have lost mine some how and need one pretty bad to get my truck going agian.

Anyone? If you could call me at. If you got an old carb I can buy/core off ya or whatever..

You are a potential life saver but we went to eat some food with the GF's sister and she walked right up and found the stupid pin and spring I was looking all over for. LOL I don't care how it was found I am just happy to have them.

I put the truck back together and it's running like a dream now.

Thanks for the offer. Do you have a mixture screw for the 60 carb by any chance? I did notice the one in my carb was cranked down against the seat pretty hard and was deformed and it now has a little groove in it.

I might have one. I am in NC till Tuesday night. Let me know if you don't find one by then.

Cool. I don't want to bother you guys if you know where I can buy one. Is that a dealer available part or does it come in a rebuild kit?

Should be available from a Toyota dealer. No idea if they will have it no hand.
