Stupid screw

I've got a stripped screw on my carb. Any ideas on how to get the little
asshole out? It's lubed but even pliers won't turn it. The rest needed
some gentle pursuasion but gave up peacefully in the end. This one
apparently wants death by police fire. Help!

Nevermind. Some serious threatening with a hammer did the trick.

Now tell me why my carb has no ID tag on it. :) LOL
I really gotta learn not to do car with on no sleep.

I didn't hit the carb with a hammer. I put the screw driver on the screw
and lightly tapped it to loosen up the rust and crap that was keeping it
from coming out. And it worked, so who's the hack?

Because somebody took it off.

If you have a Motorcraft or Autolite 2V or 4V carb, not to worry. They
basically make one rebuild kit that fits all. The year and model ought to
be enough.

Thanks. I thought it would be stamped on the outside. I didn't realize
they used those tags. I did some research and figured it's an Autolite
2v carb. I also discovered after the "rebuild" the PO did, it had no
gaskets in place at all except for at the coil housing. Things that make
me go "Hmmmmm". This is a far cry from replacing generator brushes in a VW!
