Hmm, I take it that both of you are talking about the same "jet".   It is

have a drawing/diagram of parts for stock solex carbs?  Does this jet sit
inside of the float chamber?  From what I understood from you it does, and
attaches to the top of the carb cover vertically into the float chamber.

others the type3 mailing list address comes up.  Some mail programs (like
Netscape Mail, Eudora, etc) have an ability to set a "return address" while
other not.  Could this be the reason?  Those with a return address will
cause their address to appear when "reply" is pressed, while the others
