But yeah a little tiny piece of debris getting stuck in the fuel inlet valve does mess up the works good causing the engine to run too rich or flood out even. When it happened to me, I took the regulator apart and didn't see anything causing it. But when I re-assembled it, the regulator worked fine since. So I must have flushed the tiny spec of something out when I cleaned it.
Also I have found the needle to be a bit sticky. Seems to be the arm from the needle to the diaphram binding in the slot on the needle
