Honda GCV160 Emulsion Tube

I have a GCV160 carb torn apart to clean however I cannot get the emulsion tube to come out. I can push it down from the carb throat but it will not come all the way out. Any suggestions or tricks to get it out would be appreciated.

I'm confused, to remove it you would need to also remove the carburetor bowl.
If your trying to rebuild it that's one of the first parts to come off.

You can bend a tiny hook on a paper clip and work it out, or put a bend in the paper clip to reach in the carb and push it farther down, the "O" ring is holding it in which is a good thing. Have a good one. Geo

Geo - what a job getting the emulsion tube out !! Nothing seemed to work. I tried bending a hook on a wire and tried to push it out from inside the carb -- nothing worked. Finally, I took a thin gauge piece of electrical wire with the insulation still on. I stripped about 1.5 inches of insulation off and ran that through the inside of the card and out the emulsion tube. The insulation backed up as I pulled the wire with a pair of pliers and finally it popped out. There was no rubber o ring at the end of the emulsion tube like on a Tecumseh. I checked my Honda carb IPL and there was no o ring there either. I have never had an emulsion tube do this on any engine model. Now I will clean everything and see if I can get it to start.
