Removal and replacement of Stromberg CD175 metering needle adjusting screw star washer

Recommended Posts

Finally getting around to sorting out the loss of oil from the Carb dashpots on the Stag.
Clearly I need to replace the little o-ring on each of the needle adjusting screws. Looking around on the web it seems reasonably straight forward, except for the removal and replacement of the star washer that holds the adjusting screw in place.
I've asked the question via the Stag Owners forum, and received some good advice on the task, but there doesn't seem to be a way to remove the washer without risking scoring the bore of the tube in which the assembly sits? Is there a special tool and/or technique that anyone here knows of or has used in the past to avoid this risk on both removal and replacement?

Thanks for that Nick.

Someone on the Stag forum did send me part of the info on that link - it's great to see it all. I will study carefully........
