Default Re: Problems with new kit...

I'd not cut the slot at all as there's a chance for a vacuum leak (it's pretty close already) and worse yet I've heard problems w/cracking if cut & compressed too much.

I simply roughed up the end of my intake manifold a bit to give the spacer something to grip and added a touch of 'Seal All' (fuel resistant glue): Seal-All, 3/4 oz: Home Improvement to the outside of the spacer to grip to the carby... tho I've removed the carb a coupla times since then & haven't bothered w/regluing - I think it's all the roughed up intake that's working for me.

I've had absolutely no problems with carb movement or rotation - but I'm also not using the extended intake *shrug*
