The sleeve is spring loaded and you just push it back out of the way.

You can take the screw out and remove the sleeve

There is a special screw driver with a sleeve on the screw driver that pushes the carb sleeve out of the way.

On the end of the sleeve is a little tab you can grind off and then there is no limiter.

This is easier said than done for the sleeve is small and you put it in a vice and the sleeve will flatten. May be you could hold it with a pair of small needle nose?

Had the screwdriver in stock. Didn't even think about it being splined on the outside of the screw till you said it was splined. Thank you
