they will have alittle movement in them but it shouldn't be very much .i think some of the clearance is probably for heat expansion to keep the slide from sticking when it warms up.if it's loose because of wear you might have trouble at idle or right when you crack the throttle because the fuel air mixture will be affected somewhat.if you think it's eccessive pull the slide back out and check the slide and carb body for wear.you'll see if it's gone thru the chrome on the slide.if it's ever so slight and it runs fine i probably wouldn't worry about it.
