Subaru Robin SX17 Carb Cleaning Advice

I picked up a very clean Compact 22 (920013) with the Subaru SX17 engine. Like most units I find, it needs a little choke to run smoothly. I'm in my comfort zone with Tecumseh carbs (Briggs and LCT to a lesser extent) but I've never fussed with a Subaru Robin carb. Any tips, tricks or advice I should know before disassembly and cleaning? Thanks in advance.

Just refer to it as a Subaru. Robin had nothing to do with it.

The guys on here can tell you which one of these is a good cheap replacement(what brand copy they have had luck with) :
Subaru number:
277-62301-30 mikuni carb.

Here is a video of a Mikuni carb on a blower.:




The Thirteen yr old running the camera stinks. I believe they keep covering the Mic with their hand trying to zoom in and out....which they also stink at...but I hope it helps.
