Many people have wondered how to remove the nozzle from the carburetor. It is usually pretty well STUCK in there. Please take the time to make this special tool and do the job RIGHT. Your tractor will APPRECIATE the effort, and YOU won't damage anything in the process. The tools described in the following paragraphs fit the nozzles in the John Deere Model A and Model B carburetors. For a bigger tractor like the Model G or Model 70, you would have to use a larger diameter treaded rod, for a smaller tractor, you may have to use an appropriately smaller rod.
The "official" way to remove a stuck nozzle from a John Deere Model B carburetor is with a slide hammer. Here's what one looks like:
1. A piece of 3/16" rod, 8" or 9" long.
1. A piece of 1/4" rod, 8" or 9" long.
Once the nozzle is removed, scrape the opening clean so that it fits "loose". The only thing that holds it in during assembly is the spring! The nozzle should fall right out when you remove the bowl from the carburetor.
