I need to replace 2 of my idle mixture screws...anyone know how to remove them?

Also, as many people have done before me, I took out the pin that the float pivots on and broke the very brittle piece that holds the pin in. I read on another forum that this can be fixed at a good jewelry repair shop. Has anyone done this or am I resigned to buying a whole new top cover? If so, does anyone have one?

Thanks for the help.

Let me know how you make out with getting the casting repaired I did the same thing but was able to drill a tiny hole and loop a small wire to hold the pin in place.

Brett, no problem

 

I have ordered the Des hammill book but until it arrives I don't know how to get the idle mixture screws out (I have to replace 2 of them). I want to order them but I need to know which ones i have as there are 4 different versions for the DHLA I believe.

Anyone who knows how to do this please let me know.

Hey Brett,

I asked s jewelry repair shop to try and laser weld the piece back on but they couldn't do it. can you take me through how you did it, ie with the wire??

I can't find any of these top casting pieces anywhere...very frustrating.

 

thanks!

Eurocarb LTD. at this site should have another cover for you but I think when I checked it was pretty $$$ thats why I thought I would try the wire loop.

It's been a couple of years and seems to be holding up, the piece that broke on mine still held the pin at a level hieght, thats a must. I will sketch it out and e-mail you privately what mine looks like and how I did it.
