Choke problem

I'm looking for some advice on how to remove siezed choke plungers from the carb body. I have 2 34mm carbs that the choke plungers are seized and will not budge. They have been sitting in a chem dip for about 3 hours and still won't budge. Any ideas?

Thanks

I dont know what chem dip is, but WD 40 or PB blaster has always worked for me. Soak them over night or longer then stick a screwdriver in there and see if they want to move.

Choke problem

Yep, small flat head screwdriver and some wd40 should do it... Screwdriver should fit right into the notch on the top of the plunger.
