Hi @gymwitch Not sure if they are the same as what's in your carb? The Nc23 used pilot screw's in side of carb! and on Honda parts list they have different part numbers on 2 carbs!! Sorry can't remember.

Do they look the same? and they are Brass so won't rust as in your other post! just dirty old fuel probably.

Hi @gymwitch did you photograph the position of the jets and screws on at least one carb as you stripped them?
Also hate to do this to you but did you think of leaving one mostly assembled to act as a template when you start to reassemble?
No worries if not I am confident in you! 8-)
Cheers
