when I changed the jet in my carb I practically destroyed the for screws that hold the bottom of the carb on. I have heard of people on this forum changing them out for allen screws. does anyone know what size or part number I need to do this? thanks

EEEWWW, that's a long time ago. If no one else posts, just take a chunk of what's left to your local hardware store. You can add in some lock-washers, and/or some blue loctite.

Yes just take to your local hardware store, find a nut it will screw into to find the thread size, then match up that in the allen bolt section to the length needed.

Or you can be a cheap ass like me and and just keep your destroyed screws and take a dremel with a tiny cut off wheel and cut a straight line across each of the destroyed heads and wa la!! You now have flathead screws:)
