This may not be the same thread you read about, but it is addressing the same issue and the fix with toothpicks. There is a picture down about post 17 or 18 that shows which port is being plugged with a toothpick.

Newby question, I am rebuilding carbs off a 1989 GL1500. Done a decent amount of carbs over the years.

This one has a seat the main jet holder sits in that I am guessing pushes it lower into the carb bowl for fuel?

When re-assembling should the holder be seated tight to the carb body and the main jet holder protrude deeper into the bowl?

Sorry if this is a duplicate post and Thanks in advance for any guidance...
