Just for the record, I'm ticked off...

Look at this shit, you know who you are, and it broke my favorite snapon screwdriver that I have had for 20 years and only use on carbs....

Look at this brilliant shit, first time for this in over two decades of carbs
The oring from the carb cap is slipped over the needle as a needle retainer, also no vacuum seal therefore under carb cap

Funny you say that, it's like its now personal with these carbs, they have been through the ultrasonic cleaner twice and are soaking in solvent now.
