Default Re: carb gets lose and sucks air

Are you sealing the carburetor to the intake manifold with something or just relying on the metal to metal and the clamp to seal it? Use a good gasoline compatible sealer on the intake and the slots in the carb throat to seal against air leaks and to help hold the carb tight. Some suggest a silicone gasket sealer but most of them are not gasoline resistant and will deteriorate over time. I like Seal-All even though it makes disassembly a little harder. It seals and stands up to gas.
