There is a little lock washer type thing that holds this in place.  You’ll need to gently knock it out.


Very good instructions with photos here.

Subject: [TR] ZS CDSE needle carrier stripped - need suggestions


I was cleaning the float bowls and adjusting the float height in the carbs on my 1976 TR6.  Running too rich and I thought that was a good first step.  New diaphragms (the old ones were at least 25 years old and at least 1 was cracked), and I realized that I could not adjust the needle on my right carb.  I removed the grub screw but the needle adjuster is stuck and now it is stripped so that the adjustment tool just spins.  I cannot remove the needle carrier to drive out the adjuster and star lock washer.  I have it soaking in PB Blaster, but I suspect that the old o-ring (also over 25 years old) has glued the whole works together.  Anyone have an easy solution to removing this little brass irritation?
