Default quick help???

I just got my new engine in the mail today... precirotate pr21c...

The carb is twisted at almost a 45 degree angle... i need to straighten it out... i took out the screw that loosens the carb so i could turn it where i needed it... but that carb still will not turn...and wont pull out... any ideas? i am using really solid force right now... more then what i think is necessary with the screw out... is there a trick to this? am I missing something?

ok here is what i would do... loosen the carb bolt by 3-5 turns... use the allen driver to push straight in on the screw for the carb bolt causing the black insert to be pushed out... loosen the screw all the way and remove both screw and black insert... then take the allen driver from the side that was just removed and push the other black insert out the other way... then nothing should be holding the carb in.. at this point you should be able to rotate/remove carb to get the correct angle.... jeremy
