    Thanks for the tips Cory. Just ordered my Japanese Industry Standard (JIS) Screwdriver; not the same as a Phillips tip.

    Phillips cross-tip is made to cam-out at a certain torque; JIS cross-tips are meant to apply maximum torque without slippage.

    Re: Stripped Carb Screws !

    One other tip, yeah I know it's too late for you but maybe for the next guy, if its stripped already take a center punch and center punch it on the flat section of the screw, then by using the hole you just centerpunched and the center punch to remove the screw by tilting the punch to the right and hitting it with the hammer, this method works most of the time.
    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key
    hated on by most these &^$$@s with no cheese, no deals and no G's, no wheels and no keys, no boats, no snowmobiles, and no skis, mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries

    Re: Stripped Carb Screws !

    Those screws are very small and delicate. So dont go crazy with the punch and hammer. Usually just an easy tap will break them loose. Its not that the screw is tightened down too much, but the amount of surface area contact of the tapered head to aluminum plate. Normally a posidrive #2 phillips and impact driver removes them even after stripping if you push it down really hard when tapping with hammer.

    My $8 Japanese Screwdriver just came in the mail all the way from Japan. No more stripped screws or having to use the heavy impact driver all the time. Ergonomic grip and nice finish.
