Goddamn $5 Part

I was rebuilding my carter BBD carb this evening and the stupid plastic metering rod lifter broke. I only found one source online and they are out of stock. This is for an 1980 CJ5. Does anyone have a source for carb parts, not kits? I don't want to have to order a new carb because I can't get the stupid plastic part. But I'm kinda in a hurry to get it going, hopefully by this weekend. Any advice?

This is the link to the only place I could find the part:

Give them a call, I would be willing to bet they have what you need. The owner is very knowledgable, and they'll ship smaller items.
