Help: I"ve caused myself a problem while trying to remove the idle jet on an MS TSX 241 carburator. I was careful to use a screwdriver that fitted the slot in the jet, but alas the slot is gone. Any suggestions on how to proceed? I"m inclined to try to use a small "left hand" twist drill in hopes that it will back out the jet. Or a small easy out. Will applying heat ease the problem? My tactor is a 1948 8N with a front mount dist. I apperciate any suggestions and thank you in advance

If it still has correct size hole in it, leave it alone, before you ruin the carb. An old hole works the same as a new hole....in a carb jet.

I agree with JMOR. I've serviced a lot of carbs on N tractors and never replace a single jet. I have 10 old Fords and they all run just fine with the old jets.

Red........NO EAZY-OUT!!! they are NOT EAZY. But they BREAK EAZY.

As fer removing yer "stuck" BRASS jet, try BOILING in HOT-WATER for a couple of minutes. Brass and cast-iron have different co-efficient's of expansion. The CAST-IRON will expand faster than the soft BRASS and will allow you to remove the stuck brass jet. Use a "hollow-ground" gunsmithing screwdriver. Make a hollow-ground screwdriver by holding the "V"-wedge against the side of yer grinder. Simple, eh? ........Dell

I would stop before any more damage is done and package it up and send it to GB in MT for him to rebuild.
