Hi,

recently, on a routine cleaning of my bing carburetor, i removed the idle adjust screw completely to clean it. I accidentally cross threaded it about 2 mm, when trying to put it back in, and it wont go in at all. Rather than trying to track down a new carb, i am thinking about taking it to a local hardware place, and having them try to reset the threading.

I am skeptical if this will work, whatsoever, becasause the carb is such a prescision oriented device. What do you think?
