Default Best way to remove a Carb from a VSPEC?

I have a VSPEC with about 2 gallons on it. I am breaking it down and can not get the carb to move. It will wiggle a little but will not budge to come out. Is there any tricks or anything to get it out with out killing the orings?? Can I heat it up a little and expand the case? Yes the pinch bolt is out..

If you get it out, it may need a carb insulator. Most of the carbs that I've seen stuck are from being overtightened on the pinch bolt. Usually the carb will come out, leaving insulator in the case.

Thoroughly heat the area (either with a heat gun or in an oven set at 200 degrees for 10 minutes). Pull and twist simultaneously and it should come off
