What is the best way to remove boosters from a Holley Dominator?
Thanks, Ron

Pull the booster stake tube. A small slide puller with a self tapping screw will get them out.

Weld a self tapping screw to a 5 or 6 inch long bolt. you can use a heavy socket for the slide. Works real good. They're not in there that tight.

Booster or banjo? :-k I was thinking he meant he wants to pull the booster OUT of the banjo and I'm going to "assume" that he wants to do this WITHOUT pulling the banjo and stake tubes out of the main body. I've seen some banjos break when they were taken out. :-k

I was thinking about the whole assembly. So Nomad answered that question. If you just wanted to pull the booster itself, does it just press or screw into the banjo? what is the best way to remove it?
thanks, Ron

You can also thread the booster pin to pull it out, I use a 10-32 screw. To pull the booster out of the banjo find a socket that will fit just inside the booster at the bottom, for the top a short piece of tubing that goes just outside the booster and rests on the legs. A big washer on top of it, like a balancer washer, and threaded rod with two nuts will pull it. To put a new one in you can use an arbor press or use the same threaded rod with two big washers, get a nylon washer for the top to keep from scratching the booster. A little red Locktite swabbed with a q-tip below the discharge hole in the banjo will make sure the booster stays tight, sometimes they can be on the loose side when reusing a banjo.

The insert is pressed in. It too requires a little home made puller. I think jmark or Ken has posted photos of the ones they made. I have one but, no photos.

Thanks guys, that's what I wanted to know. I wasn't sure if the booster had threads or if it was a press. Thanks for the pic's Barry.

Some heat from a Propane (or MAP gas) torch works real well when taking the booster inserts out of the banjo fitting. FWIW.

How would A guy press that pin back into the banjo without the proper tool? What do you guys use?

I use a brass drift that I modified the tip to fit the taper of the pin. Light taps with a hammer to install them works for me. After you press them in I then use a pin gauge to make sure I didn't bugger up the tip that goes into the banjo..

I was thinking of trying to build a jig to hold the carb main body and then use my drill press with the proper size punch or whatever in the chuck and slowly press in the stake tube? Is there anything special to do to the boosters before i press those in the banjo's? i thought I read something from Mark saying about drilling some extra holes in them?> These are BLP's 12 hole billet ones.

So Do you put the boosters in the banjo's first then install banjos in carb? Probably going to try this after this race.Anything special to do to the booster's etc when installing them?

I use one of those "General" tools brand automatic center punches you find at Lowe's. The body is made of aluminum or brass. The punch end goes into the stake pin and centers the punch in the stake pin. It also keeps the punch body from jumping out of the stake pin. The body of the punch is rounded and fits the flare of the stake pin perfectly so no damage occurs while tapping the pin in place.
