Pulled my newly rebuilt carbs and was shocked to find them full of red fine grains. Dissected my fuelfilter. It has losened and it seems like the glue or something in there is getting into the carbs. So .... back to cleaning and new filter.

Looks like it might be one of the defective Emgo fuel filters?

I would advise running a fairly strong dose of Seafoam through your fuel tank to try to clear out whatever adhesive may have gotten through into your carb jets.
