Carb Fitting Remove was created by Mark Serotta

My carb, same one that was stuck, has a plastic fitting outside the bowl and stem inside (see pics), obviously an overflow, but can it be removed before a prolong soaking in chemclean?

I think due to it's age it's likely to break off, but I would try boiling water on it to see if once softened up it would come out ?

I would be tempted to leave them as they are.

The black plastic/nylon outer part probably isn't original - it would likely have been brass.

On later carbs they were plastic...  Best to leave them alone and not dip in caustic cleaner.

Ultrasonic cleaner with mild chems does a much better job anyway in my experience.  Properly disassembly allows for fairly thorough cleaning without either.
