    how would you go about unsticking/unfreezing a Q jet throttle shaft ? diesle fuel ? kerosene ? something that wont hurt bushings ? or are carb shaft bushings solid ? aluminum ? brass ?

    where is some info at on this specifically ? a page or site ? or document ?

    There is no bushing on a stock carb. I'm not sure what kind of metal that is that they use, but the carb shaft rides right on it.

    I know at least some years the carb shafts were coated with teflon, but I've seen stuck shafts myself. I just tossed them. Keep the rest of the parts, but not worth the time to try and unstick them. I did try of course, but without bending anything, I didn't have any luck. Spraying penetrating oil, soaking in paint thinner, brute force, etc.
