I've had the carb apart, and did take out the main jet, poked it with a wire, and put it back. No change.

Just mentioning that messing with really old carbs sometimes seems like a waste of time-a new one can work wonders!

I have been rebuilding carbs now for well over 3 decades and most old tractor carbs if done right can be rebuilt and work just fine. Now some of the car carbs that is another story also BTDT. With a tractor carb you have to be able to soak it for 24 or so hours then use a piece of wire or as I do a torch tip cleaner tool and poke out each and every passage way and blow air and spray carb cleaner in all the passage ways and even then maybe open it up a 2nd time. Have a friend who has a cub that surges when first started and has even since I rebuilt the carb but after a minute or 2 smooths right out so have not opened it up again and that was 10 years ago and it still runs the same way and he has used it for many hours
