83 XT550 Carb help

Hi everyone I am going through the carb on an 83 XT550. The usual old gunk in there. The problem is the starter plunger is stuck in the carb, I unscrewed the actuator and the body but the plunger itself is stuck fast. Any suggestions to remove without damage? A new one is 50+ dollars cant afford that right now. Need bike to run for son in law college transportation. Thanks Crash

Soak with PB blaster or other quality penetrating fluid.
