    had a frozen pilot jet on a mikuni carb. wrecked the threads in the carb body while removing the old jet. has anyone ever tried to glue/cement a new jet into the carb body?  I know what this sounds like but doesn't cost to ask.

    Try using "loctite" for threads.

    make sure jet is facing down so excessive loctite runs out of carb not in.

    Dave.... if Loctite proves too runny and thin, FELPRO has a product called TIGHT. Basically, Loctite Blue in a tube that comes out more the consistency of tooth paste. It stays were you put it and I have had good luck with it. John D.
