Today must be my lucky day. I tried tapping the tube out from either end and it would not budge a bit. I was thinking I would have to go source another complete carb, so on a long shot, I took a small drill bit and started drilling into the center of the idle jet. After a few seconds, the whole thing popped out. The outer tube that it slides into (what is it called, btw?) appears to be okay.www.robertscarbrepair.com
has a repair kit and also appear to have an idle jet available as a separate part. I'll call tomorrow to see what's in stock. This post was edited by raklet at 19:52:48 02/07/13 2 times.
