If it will not idle, the pilot jet (idle jet) is probably clogged.

Here is a PDF manual for cheap.

Yep, that is the pilot/idle jet (1 jet, just a couple names for it.)

Clean pilot jet and should be good as new.

There are a bunch of jets in there.

I suggest searching the schematics online or buying the manual online for $5.
