    Carb Needle Seat Stuck - Help

    I am rebuilding dual Mikuni carbs in a 99 GSX Limited today and the seat on one of the carbs will not come out. Does anyone know any tricks? Yes the retainer screw and holder are out. Just stuck.
    Posting on a couple boards in case you see somewhere else.

    Thanks

    Remove the fuel pump side of the carb, drive out the old needle and seat with a pin punch, replace with new needle and seat.

    It should line up enough, I have done them this way before or I would not recommend this method to you, you could also use a dent puller (small slidehammer with a screw) screw the screw into the needle and seat and slidehammer it out.

    One more idea for you a small easeout chucked into a reversing drill should pull it out
