Ok I cleaned up my carb again and put it back on my 69 Olympic.  It ran great for a couple of minutes then I noticed that one of the studs that the carb bolts to broke.
Is this easy to drill out or am I better off taking it to someone to fix it for me?
What do you guys think??

when something like this comes into a machine shop and it is stuck in there, we usually weld a nut onto the exposed part of the stud and then use a wrench .

Thanks for the tips but the stud broke off so that there was nothing sticking outside the cylinder.  I am going to take it to my father in laws and he said he will drill it out for me.
I will let you guys know how it goes.
I would like to ride it one last time before all the snow melts.  We are sopposed to have a high of 8c tomorrow.
