Back to reality for a moment?

I am not having much luck removing fly screws. I have two out and have buggered two. Probem is my JIS #2 has a short shaft. Easy boys! I can remove the screws I can get a straight shot at but the others the point is angled due to clearance issue between the screwdriver handle and the frame. I am thinking I will need to remove the throttlebody unless anyone has a solution.

Pay attention you perverts: I removed the TB and got two flies out. No problem if you have a straight shot at the screws with your JIS #2. Two screws left with buggered heads. Going to   TB on my drill press and drill the heads off.

so, with all the work, and cost... are you sending them for "free", just asking, because the e-bay one I posted, was Local... and I would have had to get off my fat butt, drive, and pick them up, remove the flys, and ship them.. all prior to any $.

SEMPER FI.

(I know I should have just picked it up, and sent them.. but man, I've been burned too many times)

Wanted to cover any packaging cost, etc.  Happy to give you something for your trouble, or to make a donation to a charity of your choice.

I do appreciate the time and effort you've put into this.
