Depends on what made the gas "bad". If it's dirt or debris, you'll have to take it off and clean it out, might need a push pin 5o clean out holes. If it's water, you may be able to drain the water out through a bleeder screw at the bottom of the float chamber. No screw means it has to come off and get dumped.
