The only part which can get "worn out" on most carbs is the throttle slide in the body. If that's flopping bout like a whatsit in a bowler hat, then there is not much can be done about it, but all other parts can be replaced. the throttle side can also be replaced, but if it's the body worn, it gets like Trigger's broom.

My Father would always comment - like a p51ck in a shirtsleeve. Or on tighter tolerances - less than a gnat's c0c5.

Just to be pedantic, the VHB "square slide" is always pushed to the front by the return spring being on a slight angle, so it doesn't "flop about".

In fact, there's a gap on the other side of it. (Intake side.)
