Re: Help with odd rough idle on a 170inline.

Depends on the carb but if it happens to be the stock Autolite carb the top can be pulled carefully without taking the carb off the engine. Yes those points look like they need to at least be cleaned up with a point file or replaced. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
