how to fix

what do you do if you were changing the accelerator pump squirter on your holley 4160 and you stripped the threads... does someone make a bigger screw, also i noticed no fuel comes out without the screw in, is there a check ball inside that stops it, because maybe i can possibly drive this car like this until i fix it.

Bo Laws Products makes a kit to drill and ream out the threads and install a new insert.
www.BLP.com

Whats the list number of the carb (number on choke horn.) May be cheaper to pick up a good used carb body than the kit.

Holley's use a propietary screw size. Your machinist needs to know that.
