Yes school boy error would of not been changing the filter first. Always work from the fuel tank, fuel lines, Fuel filters, connections etc working your way to towards the engine until you get to the pump and carbs etc.
Costumers engines not so much (as the dont like paying for it) but on my own engines i strip and ultra sonic clean the carbs every years as if its an service item. Doesn't take long and its peace of mind knowing its been done!
We would be help to ship quicksilver stuff to you if u so wanted!
Hope this all helps.
