A leak on the bottom of one carb prompted me start to rebuild the carbs on my '73. I have the kit and most of it looks fairly straight forward.

When I first got the car both carbs were filled with a "green gooey substance" from sitting for 10 years. Not sure what caused this but cleaning was difficult. Most of it came out but the jets and needles took a beating. I thought new ones were the way to go.

I am puzzled about how the main jet is removed and replaced? It appears they are pressed in to the carb. Ideas on how to switch the old for the new would be great.

Thanks in advance.
