Default Re: Effigy's history

cut a little less than a 1/4" off the end, it fits now.

Next task, gotta get these two damn valves out:



they're part of the choke circuit, which I've never used. i want to pull them, so i can tap the holes for 3/8-16 threads and put plugs in, I just can't get those two out.. Any ideas?

I've tried soaking the carbs in Berrymans (well, that was for the rebuild/cleaning, but whatever..) letting WD-40 soak in, letting liquid wrench soak in, and thinking of trying to heat the carb body with a mapp torch to see if it expands faster than the brass valves will..
