The slide should not be able to turn or twist at all inside the carburetor.
There is a groove going down the side of the throttle slide. It locates over a small brass pin inside the carburetor's slide bore. Is that brass pin there? If so, is it long enough to properly fit into the groove in the side of the slide? Not just rest near the groove, but go in it deep enough as to stop the slide from turning.
