Simplicity 555 carb

New member here. I bought a Simplicity 555 for 25 bucks a couple years ago in the spring. Cleaned out the varnish in the gas tank and carb, got it somewhat running, then it sat until right before winter. I knew the carb needed to be cleaned better for it to run right. I took the carb apart, sprayed it down with cleaner, let it soak etc. After a few hours of spraying and soaking, i decided to get out the air gun and blow everything out of it. Unfortunately that included the small plastic piece that the needle valve goes into. It went flying and I have absolutely no idea where it went.

Does anyone know if there is a rebuild kit for this carb that includes the little plastic seat for the needle valve? I have a snowblower on my Bolens tube frame tractor, so not the end of the world that it doesn't run, but I would like to get it up and running before next winter, so I am trying to be proactive for a change instead of my usual procrastinate until I have to scramble to get anything done.

Thanks for any assistance,
