Default 1950's homelite gen carb valve(?)

Hey Fellas,.Have a 53(?) Homelite Generator I'm working on,this is the 2nd one I've had.
And there's a type of valve(?) that use's a thumbscrew,spring and a rubber seal or plug that fits down a passage way in the carb.
On both units when you try to remove it,because of the age etc,the rubber tip tears off...having no where to find a replacement,you're on your own.
On the first I ended up using a small steel ball,(smaller than a BB,).to block off the bleed(?) hole in the bottom of the passage way,figuring if it needed to seal the weight would let it do that,if it needed to be pushed off the hole whatever pressure it was pushing through would be enough....it ran well but maybe too rich...hard to tell because these engines are 16:1....can anyone tell me if this theory is sound?....unless I can make a rubber plug out of a piece of O ring and a stem to hold it to the spring...I'll have to use a ball again

If memory serves that is a check valve for the primer. If you can get it to seal with a bearing ball, the problem is solved!

Thanks for the replies Fellas....
The BB did seem to work ok but I never ran that one very long.

Looked high and low to find some type of rubber tipped.."something" to make a Valve out of..without any luck.
I was going to try and use a Briggs Viton tipped needle Valve but I think it would be too heavy(?).
.Love to be able to replace the Rubber Cup in the Primer as well..but that's a whole other issue.

Anyway the Model # is 23A, 115-2
