How are you tapping that over the fuel screw without flattening the sharp end (what are you holding it with)?

i was able to just hold piltoscrew and brass tube in my hand and tapped tube against top of workbench.[you dont need to hit tip of pilotscrew at all,you should only be tapping brass tube against surface] brasstube is soft and thin enough that it streches over screw with very little force.you could also thread pilot screw into carb 1 or 2 turns then tap the tube over it.[bottom part of photo]i used a old pilot screw with broken tip it was just to show how tube goes on.

Thanks for the great ideas. Please continue to post the great pix.

i also coat the tools that i keep in my riding bags with rubber dip[most hardware stores $5].rubber dip helps prevent rust,improves grip,stops tools from rattling in bag and makes them easy to identify when they end up in wrong toolbox AT END of day use%20%20rubber%20dip%20on%20riding%20tools.jpg
