Title says it all, the pilot jet just snapped when trying to remove it.... do I have to drill it out?

A very small EZ out and some patience and it will come right out. I used to break main jets off and pilots off all the time when I didn't realize my own strength. A reverse drill bit may work a little better, available at any good auto parts or hardware store. Just pick one small enough to fit the tube that the pilot jet fits into so you do not drill into the threads.

Well luckily enough I work at an auto repair shop so I have access to every tool imaginable, I just wasnt sure if drilling it would F the carb up or not.

I would use a EZ-out just to make sure you dont get any shavings cloggin up the carb anywhere.

Just make sure the EZ out for reverse drill bit is only a hair larger than the hole in the pilot jet. It doesn't take much for it to bite onto the inner portion of the jet. Anything larger and the jet will begin to break in half and possibly damage the threads. As husker525 stated above, be patient and take your time.

cast aluminum is aluminum nonetheless so drilling into an aluminum plate is the same as drilling into your carb... common sense plays a part in any process when dealing with intricate things of this matter. just go slow and you'll be fine.. make sure your on center
