do you know if i can leave the fuel inlet screen out? the kit does not come with it and you cant get them by them selfs it would cost me another 100+ dollars. the tech/parts guy at a local parts store said i could.

When you mention a fuel inlet screen do you mean a fuel filter that comes from the tank and leads to the pump? Or the Flame Trap Screens that cover the carb pairs? There are fuel strainers inside each carb behind the valve seat and all you have to do is clean those.
Never heard of a $100.00 fuel filter. Why would you want to leave a fuel filter out, debris from the tank will only be pulled in it and sent to the carbs to plug up the screens.

the ones behind the valve seat inside the carbs. my mech said they are pretty bad. and the guy at the parts shop said most ppl leave them out and just to make sure my fuel fillter is clean.

Get a quality fuel filter that can filter out impurities well and change them often.

I'm a bit nit-picky about things and I personally wouldn't want to leave them out, if I had to I'd certainly want a fuel filter that would keep debris from entering the fuel pump. Before you do anything you may want to contact Sudco www.sudco.com, they may have the filter available. Take one of the filter screens to a small engine shop, they may have them available.
Have they been soaked in solvent to clean them?
I can just visualize micron size debris going where it doesn't need to go and then the job has to be redone.
