i really fought with these. i pulled them out, soaked for hours and even had a nozzle tip cleaner (torch) a fine wire from a tag and neither was small enough to go through the jet. the wire would fit through the 4 tiny hpoles on the sides but nothing i had would work for the main jet hole. i think i foinally got them clean enough and drove them back in. i shot carb clean through the idle cut-off and it dribbled out the jet.
