Stuck main nozzle

It appears at some point in time some one lined the tanks on this bike with the Kreem. Never use this crap it turns into jell and works it's way into the carbs gumming up every thing. I am attempting to remove the main nozzle from a M17R with no success. Tried soaking with PB blaster for 3 days than soaked over night in acetone best I can get is to push it down about 3/8 of an inch. Any thoughts on how to un stick it ???????

Re: Stuck main nozzle

No not 100% but I sent the tanks out to be striped and relined by a local guy who I have known for 20 + years and that was his thinking.

Cobb!

Are you certain that a piece of rust-eaten spring isn't caught in the plug threads beneath it?

Easy ones get the cable:

Tough ones get the puller:

Cotton
The spring looked to be intact and came right out but I will take a closer look at.
Ingenious idea there Cotton. I was kicking around ideas for a puller but never thought about using a cable.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

Quick, Pa?

I guess that silver solder is pretty sloppy.
Probably "tool grade" guitar frets.

You are way to modest Tom. I love it though.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

I have seen a you tube video or two were they add a fifth hole to the main nozzle.
Is there any advantage or disadvantage to doing that.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

Cobb!

There's all kind of "hop-ups" applied over the years, but without something like dyno data, its all conjuring.

The first production "performance" Linkert was the M-75, which introduced the fifth hole along with its big venturi. It became standard, with other modifications, for all 1 5/16" venturi models.

But actually, five holes was standard for all DLX Scheblers since ~1920!
So the mystery is why Linkert lost one in the beginning.

There is little point of boogering a nozzle when you can get a five-holer new.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

These are for M17’s Cotton. I haven’t found any new ones on line and need to reproduce one any way as I gaffed it up getting it out of the body.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

Well Cobb,

I have never been trusted with a pair of M17s, left and right.
But I've been througn more than my share of M841L&Rs, and the original nozzles most likely looked the same.
And there was a nozzle seal.

Re: Stuck main nozzle

They do look to be identical Cotton.
Are the 841 nozzles available I did a quick Google search and did not find any although it a mute point now as I have already written a program and ordered material to make a hand full
