S25 Carb Fuel Needle Bush

Post  Kerry Allen on Mon Jul 11, 2016 7:55 pm

I need to replace the fuel needle bush on my S25 (8E) Carb to stop an annoying leaking, I have the parts on order but before I start something and end up going backwards, are their any tips on removing the old bush?

Removing the needle valve

Post  john87 on Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:41 pm

I made a puller to get mine out.... I tapped it [the needle valve] M4, screwed some M4 studding into it, and then, using the puller, just wound it out. I pushed the new one in with a press...

removing the needle seat

Tap a thread into it, and use a bolt and a piece of tube and a washer to extract it, washer under the bolt head, tighten the bolt and the bush will pull out up the inside of the tube, or alternately screw a threaded bar into it , put a nut on the end and a piece of tube around it , tap the tube upwards and slide hammer it out .
Both will work .

Many thanks John and JH, I will get an M4 tap and use this method. I can now look forward to a drip free carb!
