wolverine carb

I added an HMF exhaust on my wolverine and rejetted it and I am needing to richen my air/fuel mixture screw. The problem is it is froze up and I can't get it to turn. The soft brass head stripped on me when trying to turn it with a flathead screwdriver. I don't know how to get it out without drilling it out. I am not getting enough fuel right off idle. My dealership said I am going to have to get a new carb, about $300+ for one thru the stealership. Anyone know where I can get a good used carb for my wolverine? Are there any other carbs that work other than the one that comes on it from the factory? I have a 1999 wolverine Mikuni 34mm carb.

The screw is about 1/8 inch down inside the carb, no way of making a slit on the head of the screw.

would there be room there for a screw extracor of some sort? Without damaging the carb itself. try some bolt spray to try to loosen it up and if all else fails try drilling it carefully

:) Sounds good. Are you sure that a dremel won't do the trick? Don't buy a new carb yet. There is still hope. Let the carb soak in carb cleaner over night. That may eat all the junk off thats locking up the screw. It may damage some o-rings and seals, but you will just have to replace those.

I used a dremel tool and shaved the housing down level with the top of the screw head. I have it soaking in carb claener right now. I am going to cut a slit in the head of the screw and see if it will break loose. I sure hope this works.

Still no luck. The brass is to soft, keeps stripping.

I took a torch to it and it came out. All fixed up and runs great.
