So I got this barn bike for $10, it's a 1980 CM400T. I brought it back to life after cleaning the carbs but noticed that one of the pilot screws had been sheared off. It's the type of pilot screw that had a little lever to it. Sort of like the little grey lever in this photo. mHUjaEclALfMX5Fqby00t_A.jpg
Well on one of the carbs it is completely sheared off and I have no clue how easy it would be to back it out. I have been having some issues with this carb getting it working smoothly and I found one on Ebay for $75. Im wondering if it would be wise to just purchase the other carb or try to back out the pilot screw. Has any of you ever tied that?

Well the plastic piece is totally broken off and there seems to be now way to grip the brass of the screw to back it out. There seems to be no groove for the screwdriver.

The gray piece is not needed. It is emission control crap. The brass screw should have a slot for a screwdriver. It if has been stripped, you could try a reverse drill bit.
