Default carb loose.

I've got a slayer pro 4x4. Currently running a dynamite. 19 engine. It runs great and it's got tons of power. Noticed yesterday that the carb was loose though and leaking fuel and I imagine sucking air too.

Went to tighten it and the retaining pin is stripped. I've got dynamite looking to see if they have one but it's a discontinued part so they may not have one.

I was thinking using rtv but I'm not sure how long that will hold.

Does anyone have any ideas to get the carb to seal tight if I can't source a new retaining pin?

Thanks a bunch guys.

Measure the length and diameter of the pin and maybe post a picture of it. I might have one I could give you that will work.
