We don't know what carburetor you have but there is no trick to opening one up. Typically there will be two Phillips head screws that hold the float bowl on and that's all you need to do to see what's on the inside.
If you have the NT style, the main jet screws into the carburetor body from the bottom up. The float is the plastic donut shaped thing that you'll find in the bowl. make sure it doesn't have any fuel in it and will float when dropped into a container of gasoline.

Good luck.
