Default Stuck Carburetor

My carb is stuck. It turns side to side in the crankcase but it wont pull out. What can I do to get it unstuck.

try heating the block of the engine up some using either a hair drier, or very very very lightly with a torch.

You could also try spraying some liquid wrench around the base, that should penetrate and give you some lubrication to work with, then just pull your hardest...

Have another look at the locking pin where the nut screws on......Take the brass nut off the pin and push the pin back and forth and try and twist off the carb. It should come off very easily. Dont force it, you may damage the seat.....
