    thanks for the feedback guys.

    I don't actually know if mine is pressed or threaded.

    Instead of using an easy out I'm going to use the 4-40 method tap method. ill send pictures of the two tubes later when I get it out. I'm hoping that they are still good.

    thanks guelli for the link. i hope i don't have to go that route because shipping to Canada would be expensive and take a long time. would that tube press right in or do i have to modify anything?

    If the pilot jet is threaded it will have a slot for a screwdriver, if it is pressed in it won't have the screwdriver slot.

    the "important" bore is 0.45 mm (red arrow) and "eingestanzt" means stamped with 45.
    So KHS 47A045 will be the right jet.

    I would not waste my time on an ez-out. I just threaded a hole and used a 5 or 6mm bolt, washer and a nut. Thread the nut on the bolt, then slide on the washer. Thread the bolt into the threaded hole and tighten down the nut. The jet pulls right out. No fuss no muss.

    Fatboy did you reuse the jet after cleaning the carb or did you replace it with a new one?

    I've been able to get both of my pilot jets out using the smallest of the cheap Harbor Freight easy-out set. I think I applied a bit of heat to the carb before going at it with the easy-out. I'm not saying that's the best way to do it, probably isn't, but it can be done.

    I remove them after a chemical soak followed by a couple of sessions in the ultrasonic cleaner while still hot.

    Aside from metal expansion coefficients and the like some of that scale and varnish actually locks them in and makes them more difficult to remove.

    Worst possible thing happened.

    The 4-40 tap, not the easy out,

    Broke inside the jet.

    I'm terrified now to even bother with the other jet.

    Is there hope for me or do I now have to invest in Murray's carbs
