Hey, Im restoring an old 1971 Jawa, and I cant seem to be able to get the petcock working. I think it's clogged, but I cant seem to get in there to jar the old gummy dried up oil or whatever loose. Does anyone have an idea of what i can use to clean the petcock out? Maybe some carburator cleaner?

Also, once it's clear, im assuming that I should be able to blow through it, or at least, when it's connected to the tank, gas should flow through it when it's open. Please let me know if this is an invalid assumption.

thanks a lot!
