Are those Snap-on side cutters hiding in the shadow?

That's sexy, but a small #4~6 sheet metal screw works just as good if not better! Just screw it into the cap and pull with yer pliers.

So are these plugs designed to be put back in or is removal a one time deal?

No they are a requirement by epa to make the needle tamper proof, but no problem running with them out. These machines just won't run right after about 3 years unless you adjust them. I see many many guys on here replacing carb and no reason hardly to every do that on echo stuff.

Look, tampering with a carb/engine emissions is illegal !
Read and understand this: http://www.epa.gov/oms/consumer/f98025a.pdf
Just google " epa small engine emissions".
