I've never seen that before. I'd be leary of it knowing how sensitive those buggers are to an actual jet change though. I imaging just turning the lock nut might make a significant change in the mixture . . .

Good luck though.

Personally I like the actual jets. You change them and know that they are the same when you put them back together. It's easy to get back to what worked before too. IE: If you just up 4 numbers and it's too rich, you can simply change back bey two and try that. With a needle you're always guessing on the setting, seated vs. 3 turns, or was it 3.25 turns. If I seated it too hard did I just deform the seat a little? I don't know, and I'm not a carb expert, but the complete Holley branded jet kit is only like $60 ay Jeg's etc. And they are easy to change . . .
