Make sure the pinch bolts are really loose and then just twist the carb slowly back and forth, while gently pulling upwards. It's not glued in there. Work it, it will come free
nothing to see here................................

You could hit the crankcase with a heat gun as well to get things to expand just a touch. USE GLOVES!

After the screw is loose, hit the end on the driver (with it still in the screw) a little and it will break it loose.

when you go to put it back together make sure that when you tighten the pinch bolt you tighten it up and then another 180. you don't want it to tight or you will crush the plastic sleeve to the point that it will crack, and that is bad..
$12 to replace been there done that...
