Stripping! as threads in the ally carb body I take it, have you splashed flick on them (WD40) and given time to soak in, wire brush the underside of set screws to make sure your not dragging crap through the threads, warm thing up a bit and I do mean a BIT,,,, hot air gun or oven no flames, or microwave!, putting flick on till they are all the way out, just go steady and cross your fingers....
