Carb Clean up

I'm still waiting for an extended mixture screw which I hope shows up tomorrow, in the meantime I started the tear down and clean up of the carb...

There was quite a bit of varnish inside and the power jet was completely clogged and needed the help of a piece of wire to clear it..

Still a bit of varnish showing but most of it came off with carb cleaner and a tooth brush scrub...

My part comparison chart, new VS old...

Now to figure out which combo to use upon assembly to be in the ballpark... I think the 162 main may be a better choice over the 178, I'll use the 42 pilot... The SXC runs a 85 starter jet so we'll see if the 68 will be big enough... The power {leak} jet is a bypass jet so the smaller the # the more fuel goes into the A.P. , I will go with the #55 for starters...

I dont know what this needle is for but it is way off for this application...
