    I'm sure you already found it but if not, here's a picture of mine (I have an 81 550T) from way back when as I replaced the cam chain tensioner gasket

    Thanks Guys. I think I will find it now. Next question if I may. Have you ever seen the very small wire clips used on some carb needle and seat? It is a real challenge to fins this needle valve clip. May have to buy the entire needle and seat to get it. This is another item that does not show on any '79 paperwork, only '81 or better.

    I’ve never seen the float needle’s spring wire sold separately. That doesn’t mean They don’t exist. Also, there are members here with a side hustle of rehabbing GS carbs. These guys, I’ll betcha, have a little bank of little, plastic, well organized drawers of GS carb parts. In one of these drawer will live nothing but either CV or VM float needles, either with or without the little spring. Hit up members Steve and Nessism. They might be able to help you out.

    Many carbs did not come with that clip. It's mostly optional.
