Don't know a thing about your carb but can say that my Alamo 3 hp hit and miss carburetor has something that sounds similar: mine has a brass tube with a number of fairly small holes drilled into it that the needle valve screws into. It looks like a part that would be good to leave in place and not disturb.

Funny thing....... my 5 hp Alamo carb is quite similar to the 3 hp but doesn't use this tube with the holes but just has a needle valve that seats into part of the casting; a more typical needle and seat arrangement.

Don't know if this will be of any help, it's a picture of carb set up on a 4 1/2 HP Armstrong engine.
