should i enlarge the hole a bit? there was a little bit of dirt in the bowl, the jet did not appear to be clogged, but i am positive the dirt floating around in there was not helping. i do have a fuel filter installed now but i would say i did about 3-5 miles without a fuel filter, before i found this forum.
i am gonna see if i can find that thread of normans with the overhaul procedure.
