CARB PROBLEM 1975 280 W114 Solex 4A1

I am trying to fix a car for my Aunt. She has a 1975 280 6 cylinder W114 with a 4bbl Solex 4A1 Carb. The car has a bad vacuum leak and I suspect that the last person that changed the Phenolic gasket/plate overtightend it and warped the carb.

What is the best solution to fixing this? I am ready to put on a Rochester or Holley 4 bbl carb. Seems cheaper than fixing the Solex?

Anyone got a fix?
