    Carburetor Jet

    Hey guys....im having a surging is with my 2000 GTX Seadoo and while i was rebuilding the carbs i noticed that while there was still gas in the carb when i pumped the sync bar only 1 jet pushed gas out of it.
    Can you tell me if this piece is supposed to come off? I don't know any other way to clean it if it doesn't. Its getting gas in the hose so i assume its the jet that is clogged....any ideas on how to clean it or can i take it off and clean it?

    I'm wondering if i can just take off the part with the square end but don't want to turn it and force it off it its not supposed to be removed.

    I believe that piece is just pressed in there.

    But you can take small gauge mechanic's wire and poke the orifice to clean it out. Or you can take carb cleaner with the straw attached and spray cleaner from the INSIDE of the carb throat towards the outside of the carb as not to push any debris further inside. Hopefully any debris clogging the circuit will come out under high pressure.

    Just be sure to wear goggles or a face shield so any high pressure spray doesn't get into your eyes.

    I tried to stick some wire I had thru but it wont make that turn and I cant get the wire in from the underside of the carb.
    I also tried to spray carb cleaner in it but it didn't seem to work.

    I haven't tried my air compressor yet but I'm not sure that will do anything.

    Those are the nozzles for the accelerator pump, be careful trying to remove them as they break very easily. One set of carbs i was able to remove them, and on another set i broke both of them, just to give you an idea. Even if you break them, there is still the option to eliminate the accelerator pump altogether by rejetting the low speed screws to 90

    Put a bit of penetration oil inside with fitting up so it stays in there. Leave it an hour or so, then pop air through it with a blow nozzle. Usually does the trick.
