|Subject: 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).[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
