I am trying to rebuild my carbs, and the emulsion tubes and main jets are stuck in the carb body.  I have soaked them in carb cleaner for a while without any luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jim McDonald

Hi Jim,
Try a 50/50 mix of auto tranny fluid mixed with acetone. It's called "weasel piss". Soak up to 4 days. This stuff really works!
Tap the screwdriver with a hammer while trying to remove. Not too hard.
Apply cold to the brass using a can of computer duster, upside down. Try again.

Thanks for the suggestions,  I'll give them a try.  Actually the screws came off, it's just the tubes that are stuck, so I don't really have much to pull on.

In that case, an EZ-out will come in handy.

The EZ-out worked!  Thanks for your help.
