What I REALLY wanna see is how to reassemble the 550 carbs/airbox without swear words!
It's a well-known fact that girls like guys who don't swear all the time, so if you want to be "in" with her, try this method of removing the carbs next time: insert a breaker bar or long pipe across the face of the carbs, put a rag around the end where it contacts the head, and pull.
I don't get it...what's the fun of wrenching without a few choice swear words now and then
wow i know this is an old thread, I've tried everything and i cant get the #*$in things off. I dont want to damage anything but i guess its going to have to get ugly. besides leverage techniques described below is there any other "trick" people use?
For putting them back on, I lube them with silicone grease, put a 2x4 across the faces of the carbs and insert a pry bar to the board from above through the frame using the frame as a fulcrum. Pull back and they pop right on, I think the grease helps seal them too.
