Agree with above posts. I would recommend turning the carb and reed block as a unit.

I’m trying to get the bearings out but they won’t budge using a heat gun. The crankshaft sleeve comes loose at the front in the heat but the bearings are rock solid. Any advice please?

You can do damage to parts at 425 degrees. Any bearing should come loose at 325 - 350 degrees. Toaster ovens work great.These are Fahrenheit degrees, not C.

Understood....the oven reached about 220 when the thermostat kicked in. The parts immediately came out so it was only a minute.

What damage would be caused? Interested to know

Read this about aluminum temps.

While the article is about welding aluminum , the same info pertains to most uases of aluminum with regard to heating temps.
