    Blocked carb return

    hi all just rebuilt carbs on genesis. return from center carb to fuel tank seems blocked, sprayed carb cleaner down it, blow with air line both ways still blocked, is there a oneway valve inside the brass fitting, can the brass fitting be removed from carb, by heating so i can get at it to clean.
    any idears please
