Just a Flathead & Phillips is all that is needed.

just make sure u have a good Phillip's to remove the screws and do not over tighten them. They are easy to strip out.

Very true, I stripped my 450 screws, but replacements can be had at Lowes. If the screws dont want to come out, take a vise grip to them before you strip them out, and you can re use them.

They do me, I don't know if it is because I am always there, or maybe it has something to do with that fact that I know some of the employees

Wow! That is big. I am thinkin' of putin' a 140 or 150 in ours. Right now
with the Snorkits & the exhaust's i am runnin' the Dynojet 134. It is still
not big enough. I put some black electrical tape over half of the Snorkit
& they run great, so that tells me that i need some bigger jets.

all of the new 500's take the 170, some use the 175 i think

I have the 170, seems fine

maybe your float is getting stuck?

I have the 170 and when we had it on the dyno it was a little rich but the dyno guys didn't have a 168 on hand so we left it.

170 should do good for you. Most of us on here with the 500s and the intake and exhaust are using the 170 jet with good results.
