Hey fellows
I’m wanting to make a tool to remove the float seat from a carburetor with a pilot that will go down in the seat, the seat has two notches.140 wide for screw driver what’s the best way to machine for lugs on tool?
Thanks BFCE662B-A12B-49AB-806F-84BC575A14C8.jpeg 368E1988-6015-41A8-8C07-495A81D7FF47.jpeg

Drill the end of the rod for the pilot, then mill the lugs for the screwdriver. Then fab up and glue or press the pilot into the end.

I would mill it with the shaft mounted in a collet block mounted in the chuck.

That being the case, just mill the screwdriver flats with the pilot in place. The pilot doesn't have to be round for it to work properly.
