I am rebuilding an ms 241 for my jubilee. Sadly, I could NOT find the main jet nor the economizer jet as hard as I looked, so after disassembly I left it in a jug of NAPA cab cleaner for about 2 weeks. I rinsed it in water and blew it dry. Despite corrective lenses and a high power flashlight, I *still* can find no trace of the main or economizer jets.
I rebuilt a tsx-33 recently, so I thought I knew what i was doing, fishing for the jets.
I ground a screwdriver down to the diameter of the main jet hole and hollow-ground the blade, pushed it down the main jet hole, pushed hard, and turned- I got pot metal shavings, no brass, and then I stopped.
Economizer jet is still totally plugged, and then some- when I fish with a screwdriver, I get rust.
for lack of a better question, short of shipping the whole thing to Montana, what do I do now?
I cannot imagine the carb cleaner ate away the jets.
Its hard to imagine there wasn;t a main jet in there, but you never know, I guess.
Where can I find new jets? they weren't in the rebuild kit.
