Default Drill fuel tap?

Hi guys,

I'm real stumped with my engine. The company I bought it off had a recall over Christmas. I sent back my engine and had the "updates" installed. I'm told it was new bearings etc. I've tried running the engine and it is just sluggish. Nothing like it was. Carb is the same model but looks new, cylinder looks new also. Where I set the clutch is off also. Probably a different engine.

Anyways, starting is a struggle. It doesn't like to idle and it's struggling when riding WOT. The fuel tap doesn't seem to be letting much fuel out either. Can I drill straight through this new one? Open it up? It has a large nipple bit the screwed in part has only a 2mm hole at best.

I'd appreciate any input.
