PAJ jet - Pilot air jet. Provides air to pilot circuit. Generally as the pilot jet goes up the PAJ needs to go up. 125 PAJ or 100 PAJ and 48 pilot is a good fit. :)

No offense Indy, but I think he was referring to the jet needle.

The needle is tapered and rides in a jet orifice called the main jet. As the throttle opens the needle raises. The taper creates a larger opening in the main jet as it rises, which allows more fuel to pass through. The taper can be designed for better performance by changing its shape, i.e. the points along its length where the tapering begins and how quickly it tapers.
