Re: Need guidance with first build!
Carb tabs was probably not a good term to use. The carburetor has slots down the throat where it slides onto the intake manifold. That is so it can be tightened or squeazed, around the manifold by the clamp. What I meant was to fill those slots or gaps with the sealer before installing the carb. You'll want a good air tight seal at the carburetor. Hope that clarifies it for you. Good luck.
