I have what apears to be a not to uncommon problem. White rust seems to have siezed the plunger inside the carb body. I did a searchj on here and saw where others had the same problem. I couldn't find how anyone actally got the soft brass plunger out. Any ideas would be great. I'm thinking some liquid wrench might do the trick. If anyone has any experiance with this I would appreciate any advice.

At best I have seen some success and some failure. Take the carb off, use a pentitrating oil and saturate the plunger in it. It may take a few hours to over night. Use a pair of plyers to work it out......
