Glad you found the issue!
I think we all appreciate it telling us what it was. Unfortunately not all of us do

Now go ride it!

yep, that clip came about with the soft needle, older carbs just used weight and were metal to metal. glad you got-r running.
also of note if the needle has anti-vib spring, follow mfg instruction because it makes a diff whether the spring is collapsed or not, usually not.
