Customer Question

Is there a special tool needed to remove the carburetor on my generator? After removing the face cover, the projecting threaded studs have torx-like male ends on them. How do I remove those?

See attached picture.

That video didn't help because the tool needed was actually a female torx socket, not a 5/32" SAE socket as indicated in the video. I finally figured it out on my own by matching up torx cap screws until I found one that matched.
