    Re: Carb Needle Seat Stuck - Help

    OK. I was able to get a small size allen wrench (longer one) through and putted up against it. Gave it a couple bangs with the hammer but nothing.
    How aggressive can I be?
    I have crinkled up the top of the seat some trying to get it out. Just worried about marring the side of the carb there. Although I think as long as I dont marr in where the seat rests it should be OK. Soaking it with PB tonight and maybe will loosen some fro tmrw.

    Was worried when I was hitting allen wrench thatg is was seatred against something else, but measured and it should have been on bottom of seat. Will give it another crack tmrw. Think of anything better than an allen wrench? Its thge only thing thin enough I could angle through there.

    You really need a pin punch, you cannot possibly get a good direct hit on an allen wrench, let it soak for a while, it can't possibly hurt anything. How aggressive can you get , pretty aggressive as long as you have something like a block of wood for the carb to ride against and a pin punch that fits the hole.

    Thats why it pays sometime to send them to someone that knows how to get it out......

    Nail, small Phillips screwdriver would work
    How many gerbils could a gerbil jammer jam if a gerbil jammer could jam gerbils?

    Yes, you are making this way more difficult than it is.

    IIRC the filter lines up darn near perfect, and you should get a dead on hit at it through the filter passage
