Hahaha!! No, but less than a buck for two screws and deez nuts! The penny was part of my change. ;-)

Re: Removing the "brass tube" - Dellorto SHA

I used this method on a few carbs, it works great.

small wood screw works too for cheaps

Re: Removing the "brass tube" - Dellorto SHA

So while we are focusing on how to here's a simple question: how many peeps have done this and what success have they actually had. Are they enlarging the holes ( I guess akin to lowering the clip if there was a needle) or are they getting super fancy and trying to lean out.the mid range by closing holes and drilling them smaller. What are peeps running that are successfully made better?

The responses to that^ questioning should be interesting .

I have tried slightly bigger size holes in the metering tube of the carb on my Simplex and had fairly good results . Granted , the carbs are not the same , but I think the intention of the tubes in question is probably the same .

Re: Removing the "brass tube" - Dellorto SHA

I use the technique so I can bore out 12.10 carbs to 13mm. I dont mess with the holes, I just put it back. But it is definitely the best way to get the tube in and out. Beats the wood screw and heat method every time.

I just did this! I didn't have the 2/56 bolt or tap, but I did have a 2mm bolt that was fairly long. I just tightened the bolt into the brass tube. Then I used a heat gun and warmed up the entire carb, the tube pulled out smoothly. (edited)
