2 stroke carb disassembly

Hi,
Have a Troy Built trimmer. 3 years old. Will start but keeps flooding up after about 5 secs. Figure needle's stuck or something's gummed up. Figure soaking the carb parts might help. How much should I disassemble the carb? Should I soak the diaphram?
Thanks

Don't soak the diaphragm or any rubber parts. Take both sides off the carb and this should be sufficient unless the carb is a real mess inside. You should also remove the needle and clean it and the area where it seats.

I tried soaking the carb. Didn't fix it. I was afraid to soak the whole thing (I did take off all the rubber & plastic parts) There was one white plastic part under the Plastic Choke that I couldn't get out and left it in but did not submerge that part of the carb. There's a block in there somewhere as I'm getting gas flowing through when I pump the primer button. Is it OK to soak the whole carb w/ that white plastic part still in place?

Thanks

A block? Doesn't sound like a blockage to me, but more like a needle not seating or a bad diaphragm. Did you remove the needle? Are you reassembling with new diaphragms/gaskets? I don't know what white piece you're talking about, but you should be able to soak the carb for short periods of time with all rubber parts removed, depending on what you're soaking it in.
