I'm not a big fan of silicone but there is a time and a place for this stuff. This will seal the intake to carb very, very, I do mean very well. YOU WILL NOT SUCK SOMETHING into your engine and cause you a big heartache this way. I ,m showing you how easy it is to do step by step.
I'm finding that good silicone works very well on these engines just a thin skim of silicone on each side of all fiber gaskets will really help seal it for a leak proof fitting.
I like the black high temp stuff. Like what is in the photos I don't think this tube is high temp but you get the idea.
