What is the brass nipple in the carb throat that shoots the fuel called? Is it removeable? I almost feel stupid asking this :blush:

It's called the accelertor pump nozzle, and yes it is removable, but DON'T try unless you are skilled at it.

 

If it's clogged, you can use a piece of ultra-fine wire and real solvent carb cleaner to clear it out.

Thanks,I'm "skilled" but probably should leave it alone. I tried a welding tip cleaner to try and clean it bit it was a smidge to big. I've been soaking it with a q-tip soaked in seafoam.
