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.
