Pilet Jet Question

Hello to all.
I'm trying to get a 92 running after years of seating. How can you tell if the pilot jets are plugged?
If you blow thourgh the slotted end air should come out the little holes aroung the skinny end of the jet, yes?
or
should you be able to see light through the jet as you would on the main jet?

I've used Roach's videos and they helped a lot but he just replaced the jets and not clean and check.
Any help would be great and thanks

If you have them off you should be able to see through them.

You might be able to shove a thin wire through it to clear it out....but I'll tell you right now you're better off just replacing them.
