I'm working on a PX200e, & the 2 fuel pipes on the tap are completely blocked... the breather is ok.

I've sprayed it with cleaner, blown compressed air into it, plucked crap out of it, my neck, my back, poked & twirled wire into each end, my crack, all sorts of things... but cant seem to clear it & cant get the wire around the tight bend!

Any ideas?

Overnight in solvent? Ultrasonic bath? Guitar string poke so it makes the bend?
