    Exclamation I need some help with carb bolts!!!!!!!

    Hey Guys,
    I am taking off my carbs once again because the shafts are getting sticky. Normally very easy to do right? Well I stripped two of the allen bolts that hold the rack on. I can get the other six hex bolts but the (2) bottom allen bolts are stripped...Any ideas??????Special tool..You guys know they are hard to get at.......

    I have had to use an allen soclet and tap a bit on it with a hammer. From there you may be able to back them out.Otherwise drill the head of the bolt off then get the carb racl out off the way then you can grab what is left with some good vice grips

    You can try a Shallow-Grip Screw Extractors (Easy-out)

    +1 or a stud remover. If that doesn't work get all of the fuel lines out of the way and use some heat to heat the bolt!
