Re: A couple questions on my LT 1000
Nikki carbs are easier to clean, and resist corrosion as all the parts are aluminum, or plastic except the emulsion tube in the center and the jet itself in the pladtic tube.
A Nikki carb is more likely to clean up with a simple cleaning like you did.
But getting those 2 screws loose sometimes gives people fits.
The best tool Ive found is a small set of pliers sold at NAPA, they are 3 position channelled pliers, very small, about 4" in total length, with hardened gripping teeth on the small ends.
THey will grab the heads of the screws on the carb bowl and break them loose long after the phillips and flathead parts have stripped away...
Glad you got it going!
