Drill carefully using progressivly larger bits. The thread is likely a #5-40. See your local gunsmith & borrow one.
If you buy a new jet; use it to check thread sizes.

EVERY carb that I have had come in that some one tried to drill a jet out ended up in my junk carb box. That is why I say leave them be as long as you can blow air and carb cleaner threw them your good to go

They were most likely drilled with right-handed bits. Using left-handed bits and a lot of patience, I haven't ruined a carb yet.

I agree that it's best to leave it alone if possible. Drilling is strictly a last-ditch, nothing-to-lose approach.

Yes but most people who cause the carb damage do not have a clue as to what they are doing and also do not have left handed bits. The fun one is if the venture tube breaks off down at the bottom boy those are no fun to get out

I would recommend left-handed bits if you can get them. Ace Hardware carries them, and I have also bought them on eBay.

Do the best you can at centering the bit on the jet, and slowly increase the bit size. The remains of the jet will likely unscrew when the bit is big enough. If you find you're beginning to nick the threads in the bowl, it's time to put down the drill and pick out the remains with an awl or a similar sharp-pointed tool.
