It's what I thought - you won't be able to pass anything except air or fluid all the way through the passage.
If you look at the picture above, the passage goes down through the jet for about an inch, then takes a sharp turn to the lower left corner, then runs up the side of the carb to the top, where it does a U-turn and comes out the top of the enricher ("choke") cavity.
You can pass a bit of monofilament of about 4 lb test through the jet, though, and it should go down about an inch and a half before the passage makes it's turn. You will have to cut the end of the monofilament off cleanly; if you bite it off the end will be too wide to go through the jet. If you need to poke at the jet a bit, try a strand of copper wire.
It must pass air/fluid or your enricher won't work. Try taking a can of WD-40 with it's red straw (or whatever you have that has a red straw) and hold it tightly against the jet. Give it a good squirt and see if stuff comes out of the enricher cavity.
If it doesn't then you'll need to try a soak in carb cleaner.
Again, though, I can't think of anything that will clog that passage.

On the way downtown I stopped at a bar and had a couple of double Scotches. They didn't do me any good. All they did was make me think of Silver-Wig, and I never saw her again.
'How' are words so important they cannot be too often used.
