get a new needle, put it in, and with the carb out, move the slide up and down, while looking into the mouth of the carb. Check if the needle is going straight into the hole or not. If its not, it should be pretty easy to figure out. If it is, something down in the hole should be grabbing it(unlikely) and you should feel it.

With a lot of miles on it the slide // Carb body can wear out.

How much play is in it side to side??

Some times you can get by just replacing the slide.

I JB welded a slide in Baja ---it lasted the rest of the trip

haha, thats great. Aluminum or steel JBWeld?
