thats a really good idea i think i will go to that
but should the pin be a little snug in both the arm and the block? or should it be loose so the arm will go up and down with out any resistance and same for the block?

It should be loose in the arm. The block doesnt matter because it doesnt pivoit in there. What I do is I run the set screw all the way into the hole and take it back out and run a drill bit the size of the pins through it to clean it out. There not loose after that but its easier to work on when it pushes out easier.
