Is there any way to repair a broken slide pin in the carburetor? The little nib that goes in the notch of the slide to keep it from turning? On my '74 DT250 the pin has broken, it almost looks like it was a plastic material, not aluminum like I've seen before. I hate to junk a whole carburetor just for this issue and spend big bucks on another one!

Not sure what i'd do as it'll be a flat sort of a guide. But can you carefully tap a thread on the hole once removed & then machine up a round guide pin out of a screw of the tapped thread & away you go!!. pretty fine calculations to make so the pin sits deep enough but not too deep. Sounds easy -- Not.

Someone made a pin out of delrin or some other artificial material and had it working. That may have been on the other site, though, as I cannot find it anywhere here. DEET may have commented on it, if I remember right...
