In a hurry and tried to shortcut when I knew better. I've seen it done by many people but never done it myself until Saturday night. Trying to clean jets on the old 250f and tried to rotate the carb and stick screwdriver to remove and the carb slipped which put the screwdriver in a bind and broke part of the housing that the jet slides into. Will it be okay to roll with it or is it new carb time?

I'm not completely sure but I would bet that the portion that broke off is there to keep the fuel flow into the jet somewhat laminar. The additional plastic shroud may do it too. I think that if anything it might run inconsistent on rough ground as the fuel sloshes around. I believe the jet is immersed in fuel and the shroud(s) help keep in immersed.

I'd like to hear from someone else but I'd at least try it. Carbs aren't cheap!
