JB weld on carburetors is good for 10,000 miles or 10 minutes, whichever occurs first.

Re: Carb gasket surface

I use an aircraft in/lb torque screwdriver, set to 7 in lbs, just enough to flatten the lock washers.

Re: Stromburg linkage ball

These work perfectly for what you want to achieve.
Cut your own 3/16" rod to length and thread the ends 10-32 with a die. Eliminates the "mush" of the old rod and can also be used on the choke...
