    Stuck Idle jet...what to do

    Recently in the process of cleaning out my carburetors I was pulling out my idle jets and 3 of the 4 came out no problem...The fourth one has been stripped on the top...does anyone have any ideas on how to get it out? or could I go through w/ 3 of 4 idle jets?

    Take it to Lee auto parts and have them remove it. I paid 25 for a guy to remove 5 screws. All of which were stripped.

    Start over with another set of carbs ? Damn dude , that's the LAST piece I'd want to have messed up . Only thing I could think of (besides starting over) would be a drill with a little tiny bit . Hopefully someone else will have a better idea , though .

    It's not the main jet on top...this is the idle jet way down in the hole. I got the main jets out fine to clean them

    Just get vice grips and remove it.
