Carb Idle Screw

Hi guys,

I finally got sometime to try and tackle my problem with a idle screw head that had been worn almost smooth. I couldn't get anywhere so I resorted to drilling it out. There's still a good chunk of it in the hole and I'm afraid that I'll lose the threads on the side wall if I keep going. Does it look like I need a new carb? Its a shame since I just got them all cleaned out. has anyone used a tap and die on those holes? How can I get the replacement screw to work in that hole after I get this mess out?
