Center board jams..Help

The adventure continues...Today I did drop the centerboard and inspect. No signs of wear but the hole was 1 1/8" dia and the pin was 1" dia. I had a new pin customed milled to 1 1/8" dia (at 4pm Friday for $25 including tip). When I removed the holding plate screws (that hold the pivot pin wedges) some sea water came out. What''s the best way to deal with this? Thanks- Bruce
