Removing a main jet

Post by Matt Flynn » Thu Apr 25, 2019 11:42 am

I have pulled apart a carby (off a fire waterpump) and the main jet does not have a screwdriver slot in it. It is recessed in and can't be grabbed with any tool, twaz hoping someone might know how to get the jet out? Tried a Google but no luck. Can't see any retaining screw.

Should be able to just blow it out with a bit of air as is if what your doing is just cleaning it?

I thought about dynamite :)

I did wonder if it would drop out, might be stuck in there with goop.

Set it on fire? :)

I assume your cleaning it. Compressed air or fishing line
