Carb issue

So I have an Edelbrock 1406 600cfm carb on my SBC. It keeps bogging down. I just changed the fuel filter. What I noticed is there is no fuel coming out of the drivers side jet. How do I fix that?

Pull the jet out out and either blow compressed air and or a piece of wire through it to clear whatevers clogging it up.

Carburetor cleaner, yes. Compressed air, yes. Small piece of wire, NO! That jet is calibrated!

Are you talking about the main jet or the accelerator jet? If it is the main jet, you can open the piston cover on the top of the carb, remove the piston/rod/spring and blow some compressed air into the chamber. Observe to see if there is anything coming out of the venturi. If not, then you may have to disassemble the carb to clean it out.
If it is the accelerator pump jet, you will probably want to remove the carb lid to get to the entire system. Be sure you don't lose any check balls.
