Default Dented Carb..Help

Purchased an old rossi from a friend to find out when i removed the carb the internal section of the carb was slightly dent in..(alumininum) the total amount is about 2 mill internal and 2 mill wide, would this have any huge impact on performance?

He mentioned he had trouble removing the carb one so he tryed to "tap" the carb bolt out, so it looks like the taperd spacers on the inside may have caused the damage. The part of the carb where the air filter attatches to is just fine, this is about 1/3 smaller than the other side which has the slight bend internal.

Any help is appreciated..

If the engine runs fine and no leaks are caused by the dent I wouldnt worry to much about it. Shouldnt be any need for a new carb
