Zenith auto choke coming loose

Hi all, running into some headaches with the screws on the auto choke assembly. Seems they are coming loose from vibration, and the bottom most one decided to part ways somewhere on the road. That one is kind of important, as it fills a screw hole in the edge of the float bowl, so without it I'm getting fuel dribbling out as it sloshes.

1. Anyone know the size of the bottom screw?
2. Any recommendation for a fuel-proof thread locking compound that's not too permanent?

Loctite red should do it and be removable. Loctite green [640] will never let it go again! Screw size should be common. Can you take another screw out to take to the hardware store to compare?

Thanks! The nearby Autozone had Permatex threadlocker with a different rainbow of colors, I didn't spot genuine Loctite. Permatex "blue" can be removed again. Turns out a 10-32 x 1/2" flat head machine screw was perfect.

Loctite is Permatex now day's I think. I'm still calling it Loctite.:joyous:
