You might know this, you might not, but take your spark plugs out and compare them to this
It will give you an idea as to how well/bad your engine is running and which jets may be causing the problem.
It might be all the jets, but if only a few are badly blocked then cleaning them first might allow the redex (or similar) to do its job.
REMEMBER this.... if you disconnect the HT leads from the spark plugs, label and number each one first, or you may end up not having a scooby doo as
to which went where.
A bit of masking tape wrapped near the end of the lead and then just use a marker pen to write the number of the cylinder it came from.
Be sure to clean the plugs before putting them back, wire brush usually enough to clean them up. Blow them off to be sure all bits of dirt gone.
Some mechanics say you should put the plugs back into the same cylinders they were in due to threads and seats and firing orders. But not always too
Brake cleaner is flammable too, sometimes you can use this instead of the easy start. this just might help you save some time here. Turn engine over,
and squirt a few short blasts of break cleaner down air intake. With a bit of luck it will give the jets an immediate wash.
