Double check all the screws and pipes are removed from the bowl (don't ask!) Pen oil the join to the carb body then tap round the bowl with a soft ish mallet or lump of wood. Don't pry as you could damage the sealing edge.CheersRich

I didn't think of pen oil, or tapping round tn bowl. Just tapped randomly, really. Thanks.

I tapped and tapped and tapped and it finally broke free. Yay!

Good job. Couple of things. Don't that the temperature compensator off if the plunger will move freely. That spring is set to move at a certain temperature and difficult to get right. If the plunger is stuck, then mark the nut holding the metal spring and very carefully count the turns and put it back just like you found it.The plunger is held in place by a yoke on the spring.

Thanks. I think the spring seems good.

yup. That top one is a real pain. I modified a cheap 1/2" open end and put a dogleg in it (cut twice and welded back together). Had to grind a little away for rotational clearance, but it makes access much easier.I've got a pic of it somewhere.

They do sell those, ya know! I was thinking to measure it out and seeing if the standard one would work. Otherwise I'll have to come up with an alternate tool as well. Without a welder I'm going to have to be very creative. .

Yeah. But for me I figure why spend more than necessary. Pls, if I can make it, why not?That said, it's good time to start researching welders- you're gonna need one

I know I'll need a welder, but I'm concentrating on the engine now and get overwhelmed if I have too many balls in the air at a time.

Very nice. The only problem with making one part look that good is that when you put it back on it makes everything else look bad, then you have to clean everything else!

nicely done.

Thanks all. My plan is to slowly make everything pretty. Eventually I know I'll have to remove the engine and everything will have to come off again, so it's temporary.
