I had a couple of squirters that wouldn't clear with just air pressure. Repeated soaking with brake cleaner and air pressure wouldn't budge them. Finally I filled the passage with brake cleaner, fitted a small nylon screw snugly in place, then gave it a tap with a light hammer. This hydrolock generated enough pressure to force solvent through the nozzle and break things free. After that, I repeatedly blew solvent through to make sure everything was clear.

I suspect my were gunked up or had somehow jammed when the engine cooled and might have opened up just fine on their own when hot, but there was no way I could button up the short block without ensuring they were clear.

I can dig out the nylon screw size and post the info if you need. Hope you can avoid drilling yours out.
