So I'm using a Carter rebuild kit that I
bought from this website to rebuild the
carburetor on my Ferguson TO35.

When trying to remove the low idle jet to
clean everything real well, I buggered
one of the corners of the top slot of the
jet and it won't come out. Two
questions... Will the buggered slot
affect the performance of the jet? If it
won't, should I just leave it in there
and not worry about it?
It's the original carburetor and I don't
know if it's ever been off the tractor.
The float drain bolt is also seized up
and won't budge. I figure I'll just leave
it because i really don't need it to come
out to rebuild the carb.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

As long as the passage is clear it should be ok, try blowing air thru it to check.

I always loosen screws so cleaner can get into carburetor and around float. Let it set over night then take apart.This will clean and loosen dirt and rust helping to take apart. I use Berryman one gallon cleaner.Never use compressed air to blow inside a carburetor that's together. It will damage float.

It doesn't necessarily need to come out.

You've done the right thing, stopping before any more damage is done.

If the carb is badly gunked up with ethanol residue, best clean the jets by scraping them out.

A set of torch tip cleaners works well. Just be careful not to break one off or force it to the point of enlarging the jet.

As for the drain plug, it comes in handy for draining and testing fuel flow. A little heat while it's disassembled should get it out. I can't remember if the Carter is aluminum or iron, but if it's aluminum proceed with caution. A mapp gas or propane torch will be safe to use.

Thank you much. I'll probably leave it in there and just spray it with carb cleaner then the air hose. I'll try heat on the drain plug. It is a cast iron body.
