Jeesh! Just put a rebuild kit in it (good for around 50,000 miles, then repeat) and do some junk yard injection after this temporary fix.
Carbs always have been a maintenance hassle and always will be; do yourself a favor and get rid of that problematic bug sprayer technology.
...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.
Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.
