Default Re: Spray carb cleaner by carb to intake and engine die's.

I think you're sucking in overspray but there is a better solution for sealing the carb to the intake. Slightly rough up the surface of the intake pipe with sand cloth/paper and the inside of the carburetor throat. Use a good silicone gasket sealer like Permatex Black, and coat the intake before sliding the carb on. Don't go overboard with the sealer just use enough that all surfaces are covered. Also make sure you get some sealer into the slots along the inside of the carb where it clamps to the intake. If you're sure the gasket you made for the intake to cylinder is good then go for it. If not you can use the same gasket sealer there too in combination with a gasket.
