Removing Anti-after fire solenoid

Recommended Posts

bigcountry
I'm rebuilding a Walbro carburetor for a 287707 Briggs 14.5 OHV. The carburetor has that anti after fire solenoid on the bottom instead of just a nut. What can I do to get this thing off? I've tried turning it clockwise and counterclockwise, it doesn't seem to tighten or loosen. Do I just pull it off?

I figured it out, I ended up taking the solenoid itself apart and then I realized that it was not a nut, but a shaft with 2 flat sides for a 1/2" wrench to fit on. The wrench would not clear the solenoid, so I took it off anyway. I got it off and rebuilt and put the solenoid back together as well. I'll find out tomorrow if I did the right stuff.
