        Yep durning the last years of carbs the emission folks did not want anyone tampering with the air fuel ratio and required these plugs to be installed. Grind away.

          Had the same issue with a 2012 Suzuki DF2.5. Tin cover over the mixture screw. Never ran right took back to dealer and the factory rep removed cover re-adjusted screw and covered with some kind of epoxy. Ran better but not 100%. After warrantee was up dug out that epoxy and adjusted it the way I wanted it set. Took 1/2 turn out ran 100% better. My engine I set it how I want. Take that EPA!

            PS you might want to check with Cliff Ruggles on his Quadrajet site on the best way to remove those plugs; he is a Q-Jet and Rochester carb expert I’m sure he will know. They have a good forum for repairs and rebuilds.

              Thanks again all!
              The Dremel tool with cut off disc worked like a charm.

              Does anyone use a ultrasonic cleaner? I have been wondering in the under $150 ultrasonic cleaners are worth the money.

                Also looking for a good way to remove old gasket material remnants. Has anyone tried Roloc Bristle Disc Grade - 120 ?

                  I've used the Permatex gasket remover stuff and a razor blade. Better to soften em up first then scrape. A rotary tool can leave an un-even surface and cause vacuum leaks.

                          That's the one I use! I used about 4 of those to remove the remnants of the old head gaskets when I did my top end over haul. Used the Permatex gasket remover stuff, let it set up, then gently scrape. On a head gasket job its tedious but the best way. Rotary tools are fast but create a lot of dust and low spots.
