Float pin..........

Post  Snails on Mon Mar 09, 2015 9:24 am

I lost my carb float pin (in the garden! Shocked )

Anyway I replaced it and the replacement is shorter and fits into the carb without having any sticky out bit to grab hold of. Any suggestions how you are supposed to remove the pin?

can you not push it out enough to get hold of it, with a pin / badge etc.?

what about a magnet?  

take the carb off and tip it sideways, let Gravity do its job?  

I expect you have thought and tried all of these but your dilemma is more interesting than my work.

Ed, can you feed it through from one side to the other with a pair of curved nosed pliers from the middle? That way you would be able to remove it too

All of the middle is covered by the float

You cant push it out as there is only a hole on one side of the 'towers' the pin fits into

Tipping sideways has no effect

I thought of the magnet idea but could not think where I could find one, the only place I could think of was in a flywheel but unfortunately all my spares were at my other house.

If only I had a fridge magnet!
