Is there a standard size for fuel shutoff solenoids? My 155C needs the solenoid replaced and the factory ran it so far in I will need to grind down a cheap wrench to get it off. Either that or break it off so I can get hold of it and pull it out and pray I don't strip the threads on the bowl.

Its so far into the bowl it looks like I will have to use one of those "stamped steel" type wrenches they give you with assemble it yourself furniture. If I can get the size, no problem. Other than that, its break it off and go from there......or is there a trick to getting these off?

I would rather not drop the bowl and have to replace the gasket if possible.

I have even made a few other carb tools too. I made a tool to remove the brass seat in some carbs and I ground a screw driver down to fit the removable jets/emulsion tube as not to break off the little brass ears where it is slotted. Necessity is the mother of invention!
