Lightly sand the Inside of the slide, around the air vent holes. Clean with soap & water, as carb cleaner/brake cleaner and other solvents may temporarily swell the rubber diaphragm.
Masking tape over the outside of the upper vent holes. Should eliminate the need for sanding after glueing.
Fill the vent holes from the inside. The slight bump on the inside will prevent the epoxy from ever falling to the outside, thus preventing the possibility of jamming.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
