Taking apart and cleaning the MBG Weber Carburetor jets

Having trying all the suggestions offered up by my car guru friends, but still unable to get the MGB to purr at idle without the choke, I’m giving the carburetor jets a thorough cleaning on Saturday. I’m hoping that either something small is blocking the jets or some kind of varnished gasoline or gunk is restricting the fuel flow. Having flushed things with carb cleaner once before, I’m grasping at straws before trying a new carburetor?
