Grose Jets are a replacement for the float bowl valve.  Instead of the brass 
pin topped with rubber, the grose jet relies on ball bearings to make a 
proper seal.

Unfortunately not until trying to start my 2000 TC did I discover my rear 
float was stuck at the bottom of the chamber, and got a nice head ache from 
all the gas that leaked onto the garage floor.  Does anyone know how easy 
these floats should move?  I mean when I tap the front float down it goes 
down really easy and is slow to rise, is this normal?  The rear one won't 
budge, I can read the suggestions from a month ago to resolve this 

Thanks all, Happy October, and for those of us who do, don't forget to set 
your clocks back Sunday!
