Removing a serviceable brass seat

I've never done this before but I would like some advice on the best way to remove a brass seat on a Walbro Carb.I've heard an "easy out" is best. Also tapping with a 1/4 20 thread and them making a homemade puller with a nut an a socket works best.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

I've done it with the 1/4" bolt with no problems.

removing a seat

Thanx Cheese. Did you have to drill the hole in the seat first or could you just use the tap?

I just use a self tapping bolt and screw it directly into the seat, no drilling or tapping.

I use a 1/4x20 tap, when it bottoms out the seat will start to turn and then just use a little upward pull as you are turning it and it will come right out. No drilling
