Carb Rebuild Help

So, in the quest to fix the poor idle/stalling of my rhino 660, I've decided to break down the carb. I cannot, for the life of me, get the brass phillips head screws out to take the thing apart. I'm about to strip the head if I use more force. Never had this problem on a carb before. Ideas?

screws

I'm assuming you're talkn about the zinc plated float bowl screws?? you take a chisel,flat blade and tap it in the loosening direction and they will bust loose, had to do it a ton of times and then replace the screws with new ones...some take a bunch of force but the chisel digs in and knocks them loose...the chisel should be up and down on the screw head,pararell with the length of the screw..

When you go back together with it, replace the phillips head screws with hex heads. I think they are 3 mm but may be 4. Any good hardware store will have them.

Thanks. I'll try it. I've torn apart several Holley's before without a problem. I think I'll put some antiseize on new hex heads before I reassemble it.
