I have had good luck with Kroil for loosening.

I agree with Cordless. I rebuild these carbs all the time and an impact used as mentioned or a 1/4 drive racket with a slotted screw driver socket works good to. There was no suggestion by Cordless to tap on the housing. Be very careful trying to fix it. You could crack the housing. If it is still useable leave it.
