If boogered up threads arent the reason for it not coming out, corrosion probably is. Try vinegar or lemon juice if the other stuff doesnt work. All it takes is the screwdriver to slip out of the slot once and it is hosed. The brass gets rounded off and you cant get a grip on it to get it out. Then you have to get creative. Easy outs will just shave off the brass and the best you can do is start drilling. When you do get it out, it wont seal up right and it will flood the carb when it isnt running if you dont put in a inline fuel shut off

well heck !! how am i gonna rebuild it ? dont want no leaky a$$ tractor  lol

180 for a new one????? You can find new for half that online. I picked a few used ones on ebay for 15 to 20 bucks.


Where on line are you getting brand new flow jet carbs for $90? Please share with us. Used ones may not be any better than the devil you already have. Don't ask me how I know.

I acquired a tiller with an old briggs using an updraft carb.  That carb was destroyed by the previous owner who told me he rebuilt the carb.  The jet nozzle was damaged beyond repair. So, I just bought one of the aftermarket chinese clone carburetors for $30 on eBay.  Seems to be wroking okay for me. 

 

The unit was sold from a California distributor with a one year warranty.  The first unit arrived damaged from shipping and he sent me a free replacement without having to return the first unit.
