Well i got the post jb welded back on it works great so far. Now the problem is that the pilot needle won't unsrew it looks like the head is rounded. I was thinking about cutting the post where the pilot needle sits down in so i can cut a slit in it and get it out. Has anyone ever done this? Sent from my SGH-T989 using Tapatalk 2
I prefer to do as much myself as possible, but I was uncomfortable removing the carb, so I decided to have a local shop install my Dynojet kit on my 08 AC 400. The guy doing the install told me he didn't adjust the pilot screw (aka fuel mixture screw) because it required a special tool he didn't have. He described it as round on one side and flat on the other. The Dynojet instructions say to adjust with a flat head screwdriver. I called their tech line, and they seemed to think only Honda and Polaris used the D-shaped adjustment screw, but they're sending me a tool anyway. Per my manual, the stock pilot screw setting is 1 3/4 turns out, and the Dynojet kit recommends 2 1/2 turns out. If it's idling and running okay at lower throttle, will I be okay leaving the pilot screw at the factory setting, or should I go ahead and adjust to Dynojet recommendations? Can I make the adjustment with the carb still on, or does it need to come off?
