Okay, now, for the first time, I need some real help from the wise folks here. In the engine bay of my 78 B210 there is a very important device which needs to come out. It sits sandwiched between the air cleaner and the manifold. Company literature refers to it as the "carburetor" in North America, or "carburettor" in the U.K., Austalia, etc. Many of you refer to it simply as "the carb." I refer to it as the "that g*d-d*mned carburator" or "f*cking carburetor" or "motherf*cking carburetor," or even "g*d d*mned motherf*cking carburetor piece of sh*t." It is secured to the manifold by a set of four fasteners which will henceforth be referred to as the "motherf*cking nuts."
The four different repair manuals I have are no help. Basicly they all say, after disconnecting the battery and removing the air cleaner, to disconnect the hoses, disconnect the linkage, and unscrew the four nuts (the motherf*cking nuts.) But what they don't say is a) how do you disconnect the linkage, and how do you get to the motherf*cking nuts. They are too close underneath the carb body to get a socket over them, too close to the corners to allow most conventional wrenches room to turn, there is next to no room to position tools around them anyway, and on my car, there's the added problem that the last people to work on it ended up damaging the nuts to the point where the corners are either rounded off or have metal spurs sticking off.
So what I want to know is:
A) how do you remove the linkage?
What is the secret to getting those nuts off?
