My new idle jet puller 80's 81's slow jets

Don't laugh,,, I'll smack you... :lol: :lol: ha ha...I have read countless times about guy's that can't get these jets out, I have really never had a problem removing them myself, it always seems they keep going back to drywall screws or self tappers, I personally use a easyout and I have not once failed in getting a jet pulled...I have read of guys using vise grips, piers, hammers, prybars and the latest was a slidehammer... :shock: whatever works is what I say More Power to you guy's...don't go start knocking my idea down just yet because it's untested, I am 99 percent positive it will work :shock: :shock: but I have not tried it yet....Now this is a rough model of what I'm trying to do, sloppy yes, I am a caveman :shock: , it's the idea that counts and does it work??? I'm sure it will..So how would I use it...Easy, the end part comes off....place the screw in the hole of the end part and screw it into the top of the jet so you have a good grip on the jet...place the bolt thingy to the top and place the screw and nut on it...might need to block the bottom with 3/4" small blocks of wood to elevate it [I might just make a base for it], then just take an adjustable wrench and tighten the nut at the top, see I drilled out the threads so it can slide up and down the bar, out should come your jet... It gets unpressed in, there fella's...Just call it Littlebeaver's jet puller thingy.... :lol: :lol: ok you can laugh now :lol: :lol: It's so silly it might just work...Here's a photo..Hey you might be able to use this to get a stuck piston out of the rear brake cylinder, just drill a hole and screw in a screw and pull it out :shock: :shock: heyyyyy.... :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: pull a bearing :geek: :geek:

Yeh I goof off alot but I do take some things seriously, I bought the worst set of carbs i could get my hands on to experiment on.. see I figure If I test my tool on the most terrible carbs I could find and it works, then it's highly possible that it would work on a semi bad set.. Here are some photo's of the carb I got...
really bad set of carbs

My goodness these are rough

And my tool pulls the jet right up, Perfectly the first time..

I just got a good bite on the jet with a fine thread drywall screw and out she came..It worked just like I thought it would, no problems, no wiggling and pulling, just turn a nut man and done.. :D Never under estimate a Little Beaver :geek: just don't ask me any electrical questions ha ha...... the easy out bit always worked for me too but anyone can do this and you got a have a certain bit for that..Simple too... I mean If your gonna use a drywall screw on it, might as well do it right... instead of fussing with it.. :lol: :lol: :lol: so Congratulations to me... :lol: It works well..

Good one , but I have a question, did someone find those carbs under water? And pay you to take them? Wow that is like child abuse, what they did to those carbs.

Is there any of it you will be able to salvage?

well just a few parts, I plan on using it for a jig to make a single carb setup maybe..I'll keep any small parts on it I can but the linkages are frozen big time..Beyond anything I have ever seen...
