The Walbro carburettor float valve seat, also known as the needle valve seat, is designed to operate as a base or "seat" for the needle valve. It can wear down after repeated usage, causing the needle valve to travel farther than it should. The float valve seat is a very simple part to remove, but care must be taken since the part is so small.
