My manual says type 1 carb with filter bowl attached and adjustable high and low speed needles. The needle is smooth with
nothing on it.What you may have is some packing and maybe a washer stuck.Be sure you have removed any packing from the hole as well. For identification the point of the low speed needle is quite long and slender and the high speed point is noticebly shorter and stubby.The low speed packing nut is about twice as long as the high speed nut.It appears that both needles screw into the threaded carb body.
