What are the chances that the carb body was damaged from bent airscrew

How easy is it to damage the body using a bent screw?
Is there any way to check if the seating area is damaged?
Has anyone seen a damaged one, and what were the symptoms?
Is ebay the best bet on sourcing a used kiehin body?

It is like there is near zero adjustability in the pilot circut. I've been chasing my tail on it all week , so now I will throw some parts at it and see what happens.

I would try replacing the screw. It is softer material than the carb body.
Be sure you have all the washers and O ring when you put the new one in.
Could have been that they were missing and someone screwed it way in to compensate for the air leak.
I agree that a missing O ring may have caused an air leak. Carb bodies are either a pot metal or aluminum, both are soft and easily damaged.
