Snow Thrower ,Replacing carb bowl gasket

Hi,
I would like to know if I have to take off the Carb to replace the bowl gasket. It would be a lot easier to do then taking off the carb. Or will the float fall out if I don't take off the carb.

you can do it, as Cranman said. The float should not fall off, it is held on with a pin. Occasionally the pin is partially out, and the float could come off if you jostled it. Just carefully remove the bowl and all should be good. Note the rotation of the bowl on the carb before you remove it (maybe mark it with a pen), there is a specific way to install the bowl. Ask if you have any concerns.

Stand the snowblower on the front housing, it's easier to do.
