Just got this last week has a bad carb jet was frozen in place and previous owner messed it up trying to get it out. Are the zoom zoom carbs any good I see on eBay?

Had to google that & try n work my way to this page which says sold out so must be good--or not. If you're talking pilot jet which is often a problem, i'd just try & poke a very small strand of wirebrush or something strong--acupuncture needle i saved on a visit once haha. & see if it'll go through & out into the venturi then blow it out & carry on. Important part of the jet is right up top where it seats. Might have cross holes for air i think but anyway straight through is important. Can if necessary just tidy up what you can see so long as there's a hole there leading to the metered bit at the top end.

Save yourself many wasted hours of time and frustration & clean the carb you have. Check the Tech Library on this forum to see how it comes apart, get yourself some brakeclean or Berrymans dip or your preferred cleaner, and use the wire of a twist tie, lots of compressed air, & patience to clear orifices.

If he stripped the jet trying to get it out, I’ve done that myself in my younger days Pretty sure I carefully drilled it partway through and used a small easy out bit. I’m super careful these days. May be others with better advice on how to extract them.
