    I'm rebuilding the carb now on a 11 HP B&S engine (252707). I can not seem to get the nozzle out. The screwdriver is slipping and damaging the brass. Do I need an eze-out?

    Thanks in advance.

    The holes in that nozzle are so large it's not necessary to remove it, Just leave it in and shoot carb & choke spray cleaner with the straw through it and re-assemble.

    BTW, I have found those 4/6 in one screw drivers from the hardware store works great for removing jets without damaging the internal threads.

    Thanks, I did spray it very good and then realized a new one came in the kit. That's when I decided to just replace it while I was there. I'll leave the old one in.
