I'm working thru my Rochester 2-bbl restoration and had to take the choke plate 
shaft out.  It is held in with 2 small brass screws, staked in place, and of 
course I
damaged one getting it out.

I was surprised to find that none of the parts places in town carry these, and 
rebuild kit that I got from one of the old truck mail order vendors doesn't 
include them.

Where can I get these small brass screws?

Most small screws general use screws that I might find at a hardware store would
probably be too soft.

I don't really have a tool to restake these in place; is there anything else I 
can do to
hold them in?  Is there a Loctite that will do the job?  The last thing I want 
is to
have one vibrate loose and head down the engine.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
