  11. Floats can become sinks on the Bing model 84. You can check it by just putting the float in a container of gas. It should not sink to the bottom. I bought a float from Bing USA for Spanish Bing #12301/1. I think the newer floats are black. The part number was 350300 $15.78. http://www.bingcarburetor.com/ On another note, I also bought a slide that did not have the same cut-away as the original. Bike ran very rich through the mid range and ended up changing back to the original worn slide. Bob
