You might need to totally disassemble and fine-clean the carburetor for the amount of time it spent inactive and dirty.

Those little bearings are indeed little steel balls or BB's. They are normal and installed by the factory, usually, to block off a passage in the carb to prevent a fuel or air (vacuum) leak.

Also, sometimes the factory removes an adjustable feature from the carb, like a fuel mixture screw and blocks it off with a steel BB. The carburetor then becomes a non-adjustable carburetor.

*They are not meant to be removed.
