    Question Carter BBD electric choke

    Can anyone tell me how to get the electric thermostat coil out of the Carter BBD electric choke? Aside from drilling out the rivets in the plastic housing (like I had to do to get it off), I don't see how to remove the copper spring off the center post.

    I'm junking a Weber for a MC2100, but need the coil reversed from a Carter to make it work correctly. Had the original Carter from the PO, who had a Weber put on.

    If not doable, which electric choke must I get to ensure correct size and counterclockwise rotation of the spring?

    Thanks

    If my memory is right (which is iffy) the spring just slides in a slot on the rod. Might be oxodised in there, and need some assistance

    Can you tell if there is a slot on the choke rod?

    Been awhile since I did mine, and I ended up just going with a manual choke on my MC2100.

    There is a slot...in fact two that are perpendicular to each other. The spring is sandwiched in there TIGHT! I tried wedging it with a flat tip, no go; I tried heating it with a soldering iron, no go; now I'm stuck...just like it is. I'm afraid if I help it tooooo much, the spring will spring out of whack.
