Need carb parts for \'75 YZ125

I have a 1975 Yamaha YZ125 that has a problem with gas periodically spewing out the overflow tube on the carburator. Based on inspection, my best theory at the moment is that the float valve seat is galled and is thus not sealing properly with the float needle. I went to my local Yamaha parts dealer and they want big $$ for these pukey little parts. Plus they are special order (and thus not returnable). Does anyone on this BBS have these parts for sale (cheap), or possibly direct me to someone (or a website) where I can get these Jurrasic-era parts at a reasonable price? I'll take used parts if they are in reasonably good condition. Thanks for all your help!

Re: Need carb parts for \'75 YZ125

Go pick up a Cycle news mag at a bike shop and check some of the ads, I think there is a place called Vintage Iron or somthing like that ???

What about repairing it?? I've seen epoxy repair leaky floats before [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for the tips on the magazines. I'll check it out. Actually its not the floats themselves that are the problem. It seems like the float valve seat (which contains the little needle) has some scars on it which are allowing the gas to flow through even when its supposed to be shut off. If it was the float, then, yeah, I could just patch them with a little epoxy. Thanks again.
