Well........probably best if I snap a picture and post it this evening. Not sure the exact model of MS carb it is but I'll try to explain it as best I can. Carb mounted on right side of engine, just forward of the throttle linkage (where throttle the shaft passes through the throat of the carb) this brass screw/jet/needle goes in at an angle pointing to the left rear of the tractor.

I applied what I "assumed" to be a reasonable amount of force........then probably a little more for good measure and snap! So in my infinite wisdom, and because this has worked for me many times in the past on non-brass screws, bolts etc. I got my easy outs and proceeded to drill. Well the smallest easy out I had just stripped out the brass so I proceeded to the next size which gripped well but I still couldn't get it to budge. So I drilled it out a little more and tried to knock the sides of the screw in but in hindsight that was probably a very bad thing to do. After I looked at the new one that comes with the rebuild kit I realized how far into the carb it actually goes. So now I'm not too sure just what to do. I don't think I have damaged the threads (yet) on the carb body but I still have to find some way to remove the remainder of the screw/jet/needle.

I have it soaking in a can of carb cleaner right now maybe that will help. Funny thing is, everything else came out just fine, which is normally not how it goes with other old carbs I've worked on so I just assumed this screw would be no different.
