Carburetor Question

Recommended Posts

Simplicity7013H

Despite my injury, I am still working in the shop ( it's hard to work with only 1 hand) and I was wondering how to get the needle seat out of the carb. Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Elliott

They can sometimes be a real bear to get out! I find if I swear at it once or twice they usally come out....I have also had to drill out a few...not fun!

One old aircraft mechanic taught me a trick that often helps. Tighten first.

It is counter intuitive, but it uses the tightening faces to break the corrosion, then use the removing faces to make it come out instead of buggering both.

if this is a Briggs updraft carb that you are asking about then the needle seat simply unscrews with a wide flat head screwdriver.

Last one I had that was stuck got soaked in carb dip for a couple hours. This was after I stripped it out, and then drilled it and stripped an extractor out! After the dip, I used the next size up extractor, and it backed right out. The carb dip will destroy any gaskets or rubber left on the carb, so don't do this unless your planning on a rebuild anyway.

Good Luck!
