I had a bad carb rebuild in Prescott az and now the shop closed up and moved to the east coast to add new pissed off customers. So I have to re-rebuild myself.

Problem he tightened the plenum screen screws with such force (boby has been separated but not the screens that bolt the carbs together) try as I might I am stripping the Phillips heads in the struggle. Question can I use a torch to weaken
The bond or will I wreck the aluminum body in the process? Have tried everything in between except drilling. So whadda think is there light or trash can.

Do you have an impact driver?, have you tried vise-grips? You can heat them up a bit but don't over do it. Got a heat gun?

I had to use a small pair of longnose vice grips on mine.

A Dremel with a small cut-off wheel is what I use to cut a slot meant for a flathead screwdriver, ...like a number 3, ...a big one, ...preferably the kind that has the hex on the shank at the handle so a wrench can also be used.

Put allen bolts back in upon reassembly.
