Why Hitachis SUCK EGGS (or why I should have rebuilt my carb!)

Anyhoo as I am rolling up to the gas station it sputters and dies, I Think nothing of it, figuring it was out of gas, since it's fuel light doesn't last as long as the one in the turbowagon. Get my gas, fires right up, drive out to the exit and it dies. Won't restart. Helpful cop helps me push it back into the gas statioin lot so I'm not blocking traffic. Pop the hood, take the air cleaner off and try starting it. Fuel starts pouring out of the carburetor. Great... So I pop the top off and take the float valve out, and wash it off in the bowl, stick it back in, shook the float to make sure it wasn't full of fuel (it wasn't).. Notice bowl is full of gunk..
So now I get to rebuild the carb like I should have when I had it off before... Oh well live and learn.. No I'm not gonna weberize it cuz I dont' have a spare Weber...
Anything in particular I should pay attention to when I'm rebuilding the carb?
