I don't own a bench vice and because of my lack of mechanical skill, would rather not remove the carb.

It didn't work that easy for me. Tube started to kink, so I left it alone. As a test, with the pig tail, I ran the tank dry. Curly Q did not air lock. Ran the tank bone dry, including sloshing fuel from the right side.
