At the bottom of the image (provided by Blindstitch) theres a red arrow. Is it pointing at the 'Pilot?' Is that what it is called?

There are 2 of them, another to the right.

My question is, in the kit, there are 2 provided, does it matter which goes where???

I noticed that the holes are different sizes... Did anyone else notice this??

They're meant to be different.

The one with the larger drilling [and number] screws into the brass fitting.

The smaller directly into the carb body. [your arrow]

The pilot is the screw on the left wrapped in the spring. AKA mixture screw.
