Carb blowing...

Hello, all...I've seen several references to blowing carbs out with compressed air...Before I go at one and wind up sending parts halfway down the block, do you folks have any tips as to where & what I should and shouldn't blow out with the compressed air? I assume I need to remove the float & needle but what else? Thanks...

Any jets or screws that can be removed and cleaned. The fuel inlet port, possibly the seat is located here where the needle closes. Some are replaceable, some have rubber tipped needle valves some have............................

Sometimes the bolt that holds the bowl on is itself a main jet. The bowl flange and gasket is an area to attend......
