Default Pilot Jet clogging right after i clean it

Title says it all. Yerf dog spiderbox gy6 motor.
I clean the pilot, it is noticeably clogged, run a fishing wire through it and can see through it. Hooked it up, tried to start it. Same thing. Won't start, pull it apart, the pilot is clogged. I have replaced carb, fuel filters, and cleaned gas tank. Thinking i should replace fuel lines. Any ideas. What am i missing?
Thanks.

If the only thing you haven't tried is new fuel lines, start there. Add another in-line filter right before carb. If you are still getting junk then your carb might still be dirty inside. What does your gas can that you are filling your kart look like inside?

Try an inline filter in the line before the carb. I bet you your gas tank still has gunk in it.

Ok. Thanks guys. I already added 2 brand new feul filters inline and replaced the carb. I was thinking maybe just bad tank and it needs to be replaced but 2 inline fuel filters should be taking care of any gunk. Back at it tomorrow.
Thanks.

Could a venturi effect be happening from one of the drain lines that aren't capped and be sucking in dirty air?
