Holley Rebuild Issues

I am rebuilding my first holley its a 4150, 650cfm. While reassembling there was a piece missing on the secondary metering block but it was there when i took it apart and can't find it anywhere. Not exactly sure what it is. Its a little silver ball that seems to get pressed into the bottom of the metering block. Any input? This is the rebuild kit i got HLY-37-485. I am pretty sure its the right one cause i emailed my list number to holley and thats the number they gave me. I will upload a pic as soon as my email comes back up.

It's probably the check ball for the accelerator pump that is in the fuel bowl, some fuel bowls have the ball and some have the rubber check valve. But the check balls seldom come out on their own as they are held in by a little brass strip that keeps them from falling out.

It normally doesn't come out. I'm not sure what they use to plug it, aluminum ball or lead shot. Maby a little epoxy for good measure? Just needs to be plugged and whatever you plug it with shouldn't leak gas or obstruct the ports.

That is the passage for the accelerator pump. That hole is supposed to be plugged. I think it's like a half round aluminum piece pressed into the opening just barely below the surface.

Been a while since I've done serious work on a Holley.

If that were to happen to me, i would tap it with a tapered tap. a size like 8-32, or 6-32, what ever size fits the best. don't tap in very far, and then get a set screw from a hardware store. use some red loctite so it stay put. just what i'd do.

I have sealed that hole with a piece of lead about 1/8" thick and slightly larger than the hole to be plugged. Mix up a small amount of epoxy and place a smear on the bottom of the piece of lead. Place the lead over the hole and tap it in with a small hammer until it's flush with the surface. remove excess lead and your done.

I would not trust solder, and I sure would not trust a BB. The lead method is what was there originally.

A little hard to make out if there's meat enough, but if so it can be threaded for a set screw. And a dab of locktite.
