q-jet power piston

Certain of the metering rods and jets to be lined up. Noticing that the power piston has to be pushed at WOT before the gas is purged up to the exit site just above the venturi. Thinking that since the cylinder that the power piston is in is a tapered cylinder that I have the wrong plunger seat, and it is not sealing to push until the bottom of the cylinder. On the other models I've tried slightest movement of throttle actuated this part of the carb easily. The one I took out matched the one I put in but then again it didn't work either. Or fuel is just not getting to the power piston site which would have to be float level problems
