Hello all.

Anyone know the proper procedure for removing the pilot screw limiter cap. I have tried prying a little and slight tugging straight out. No go. Thanks.

Hey Pred,

The pilot screws control the air-fuel mix at idle and as such are considered an emission control device. Once the screws are set to specification within emissions standards, caps are then placed on the head of the screws. These caps prevent movement to a richer mixture. This prevents the average Joe from tampering with screws which may result in a too rich condition and thus bypassing emission certification.

I will wait until the bowl covers are off to remove the screws. Does anyone know what type head (special tool needed) are the pilot screws without the limiter caps.

If it is a funky type head, I just might grind the boss off the limiter. This so a slotted screwdriver can be used for the adjustments.
