Hello, I'm Tan. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and will reply momentarily.
The retainer attaches to the float and the inlet needle. This is so the inlet is pulled down by the float when fuel in float bowl drops. It will come down by gravity the clip is designed to pull the inlet needle down if it sticks.
Now is this the retainer you are referring to?
