So, I got into the carbs on my ‘81 the other day and honestly the worst I’ve ever seen. Gonna be completely rebuilding them. I am having trouble locating floats for the ‘81. Will the ones from earlier models like 77-79 work? I uploaded some pics of what I got versus what I was looking at buying.

A soda blast and rise will make them like new. I have done this dozens of times.
 
Oh wow! That cleans up like new...I went ahead and just ordered a couple earlier model ones. They sit just fine...now I’m having starter trouble. Always something. She rode around the block today though!
