Loosen the pinch bolt and remove it, then remove both halves of the pinch sleeve. At this point you should just be able to twist the carb out.

somebodys gonna comment on this, i just know it! ... but ive "carefully" used a pair of channel locks quite a few times to twist it loose. just have to put something at the contact points so you dont scratch the carb, like a small piece of rag or something. mine is always hard to come out...
