PostSubject: Removing Carburettor Float Pins   Thu Aug 11, 2016 12:17 pm

Perhaps these two tricks might be useful with other awkward fragile assemblies, though I can't offhand think of any.

For driving the float pin out, I embedded the carb (which is an awkward shape to hold) in potters clay in a plastic bag for hammering (my idea).

I'd guess "silly putty", wet cornflour, (hippy mis-spent youth givaway) or concrete would also work.

It was still stubborn, though, and I ended up using a spring loaded centre-punch (not my idea, but a very good one).
