We all get that you HATE ethanol Jerry, but you can't go blaming every issue in the fuel system on ethanol.
it's getting old.

Plastic will become brittle with age even without the fuel...or the ethanol.

Not my idea btw, saw it at a Harley forum for removal from CVK40 carbs.

So I tried to make this puller from Wolfie's comments, and I threaded the brass inlet, but when I tighten the nut on the bolt that I threaded in, it just snugs the bolt to the inlet. Was I supposed to reverse thread the bolt or something? Could someone explain this like I am 5, please?
