Thanks louie4 for cleaning up my nomenclature.
No problem. Some of my other technical terms are "doo-hicky", "thinga-ma-bob" (or thinga-majigger) and "doo-da-lolly".
As for the roll pin you can get them at Lowe's. To replace it you'll need to take the carrier out and unbolt the ring gear, at least I had to when I was putting my Lock-Right in. If you can get the roll pin in without interference from the ring gear then disregard my next sentence.
Make sure you mark or take a picture of the orientation of the carrier bearing caps, which side they go on and mark the carrier and ring gear to make sure you put it back the same way as well. It's usually good practice to replace the ring gear bolts but I ended up using loctite and torquing them to spec.
