is there a fix for this?

when i was shimming my needles i broke one of the little tangs off of the inside of the slide where the retainer seats with that rubber o-ring.


part number 3 seats with part number 11. rubber o-ring (number 4) goes in between them for like a locking ring. can this be fixed inside the slide some other way? im going to try and sell the bike on friday, i NEED it to be running before then.

if there is no fix, does anyone have a carb slide that i can have/buy with the quickness? i need it yesterday. ill even drive to get it. im around peoria illinois.
