    If tickling doesn't produce the flood it should, the needle is somehow not unseating or the float adjustment is grossly out. Some things to check:

    A lot of useful info on below link. As Farmall states , if you put in new tickler its most likely set it up to high so its not engaging float

    I noticed a threaded hole on the underside of the carb.Looked it up and some carbs had a screw in pilot jet wondering if it had one at one time but didn't see any sizes in the manual for replacement.

    The bike would kick and run but unless I gave it constant throttle it would die thats the main reason I tore into the carb.Also the choke has been removed and capped with a screw by someone at one time.

    that threaded hole is where they used to put the pilot jet in 1968/69, but then they moved it to the inside position.

    the way your bike runs sounds like the pilot jet is still plugged. shooting carb cleaner into the hole won't do any good, you need to punch through the jet wit a piece of wire or an actual pilot jet cleaning tool.

    I went ahead and replaced all the jets before I put it back on replaced the air and mixture screws and all gaskets and o rings I measured the float just now and I'm getting .045 thousands so I need to adjust that but didn't think it being shallow would affect it tickling.I also changed the filter in the banjo nut.after reinstalling the carb on the bike I couldn't get the carb to tickle so I never did get the bike started to see if the rebuild helped with the stalling.When I removed the needle I didn't pay attention to what groove the needle clip was in so I just put it in the middle don't know if that could be why it won't tickle?
