Pulsa-jet problems

I've got a Briggs & Stratton m-130202, t-3129-01, c-90040507, off of a rear tine tiller. It's got a pulsa-jet type carburetor. My question is how do you replace a fuel pick up tube. The brass tube is approximately 2-3/4" long and the fuel pick up tube is 2-1/2" long. According to Briggs you heat it up in hot water and then slip it on. I've even tried heating it up in boiling water and am still not able to get it to slip on. Anyone have other ideas?

Hmm, I don't recall having too much trouble putting them on, but they are a tight fit. Keep working with it...maybe a heat gun? I just push and twist until it goes on.

I've got another question, the small clip that holds the fuel pick-up in place. How can you expand the small clip in order to get it over the end of the pick-up tube?

It's not intended to be expanded prior to installing, it just expands as you push it on.
