pilot jet does have an effect when slide is open, but yep, that's a whole 'nother thread.
if the carb body itself is wallowed out and the needle jet is 'loose' it could pull tons
of fuel up. that could be a problem. that little ding in the needle jet? could be a big impact on how the fuel atomizes..
if your jetting has no effect, fuel is getting there some other way.....
how bout this - does the air screw have any impact? when you close it does it stall, and when you open it does the idle increase till it gets flat sounding?
