Carb Rebuild #4
Ok, i wrote an essay below thinking your carb is a DT1 old style. Ignore most of my dribble if its not that type sorry.

Jets don't wear out. Possible but unlikely that the slide needle & emulsion tube might wear where the needle slides in it. Slide itself is unlikely to be worn but you'd visibly see it if it was. Just pull all the jets & make sure they're clean. That includes removing the needle jet/emulsion tube. Study the slide needle for visible wear. Clean, prod the choke fixed jet in the bowl cavity. & most important is the very small Oring on the jet setter where it seals into the bowl. If that leaks the carburation goes all to hell in a hand cart. Link below--if it works--shows wear in the needle jet, very visible in this case. Cheers.

Have you replaced the 'O' ring that sits on the Main Nozzle yet? Not guaranteed to solve your problems, but it won't do any harm and is cheap.

Yes, your problem with the original carb sounds like the o-ring that seals the jet setter to the main jet well in the bottom of the carb.
