Honda lawnmower carburator main jet

I have a Honda lawnmower that will not start or run. I checked spark to spark plug and all is well. Tore into the carburator and found the main jets hole is not clear thru. All jets I've replaced on holley carbs have a hole clear thru. I've tried using stainless steel mig wire to clear the obstruction to no avail. If someone could verify the hole is staight thru all the way I'd appreciate that.

Every main jet I've seen has a hole all the way through. If not, no fuel would pass through it.

Have you tried clearing it with something smaller than the wire you are currently using?
