Okay, I respect the concencess here so I tapped two passages and plugged them, and made a gasket for the top cover. Easily reversible should the next owner desire. The plugs were sealed with 3M gasoline resistant sealer as a hedge. When the new jets arrive these things will be done.

Oh, it's hard to see but the small vacuum passage next to one of the cover holes is plugged with a 4-40 grub screw, and the center hole is plugged because it connects over to other internal passages. Not sure this one was necessary but did it anyway. The larger hole in the bottom of the bowl passes straight through to the bottom of the float bowl. I figured it won't hurt to have this one open since it doesn't go anywhere.

Screw in the centre not needed, now they will operate as all the others with the added bonus of a quick squirt of gas on sharp openings, the circled opening is where i put an m3 grub screw.

That passage is plugged. I didn't have an M3 tap so used 4-40.

Waiting on float bowl gaskets and jets, otherwise done.

Not sure why the photo is upside down. Sorry.

I was having trouble finding the part that you show in the photo.  Then I realized this is only on the carb with the pumper....I'll do that one next.  I just did one of the four so far, and it wasn't the pumper.  I need to still find gaskets.......ordered the o-ring kit that you linked to on Ebay last night.
