I am having an odd issue with the carburetor in Survivor. I have completely rebuilt it and for some reason only one of the jets are working, now it was doing this before I rebuilt it. I have sprayed out all of the passages and all of them appear to be clear but for some weird reason the one jet will not work. any ideas?

It probably has a floating clog. I had to drill out mine to make sure it stayed clear. I have also used torch tip cleaners.

Did you soak the carb in carburetor dip. Its the only way to get it completely cleaned.
I have cleaned some carbs by spraying them out and they haven't worked right. I had to get a can of yhe dip and soak it. Then it was ok

I can't afford the dip for the carburetor since I had to buy new tires for Eagle Eyes which took all my money.

Use a small piece of wire to clean out the jets or search for the right drill bit size.

Yes tires are very expensive....damm do you know of any repair shops that might let you drop it in for a bath? or else have a extra carb. that might work in the meantime ?

no I don't know any shops that would let me do that as for a extra carb I am contemplating going to the junkyard and grabbing the carter they have sitting in the back of on of the cars. but if I can't get it I do have the motorcraft carburetor that came with the motor that I can put on there but I really don't want to do that.
