My 1980 1.6 SRX has dual carbs.   Do these carbs contain Jets? Keep in mind this is a this is a Non-U.S model. I am confused, because I was told they do not have any.  Any advise will be appreciated.

Like Ivans Imports said:  They all have jets... kind of what defines them as a carburetor.  BUT... a jet is simply a fancy name for an orifice, something through which fluids pass, used for metering.  The person may have meant that the jets aren't changeable, or that there may not be any replacement jets available.
