Cutting it - aka Gasket making.

Hi All,
As part of the get her runing again I noticed a LOT of fuel in one of the carburetor throughts so had to take them off to check.


The float bowl off.

The float was set wrong so flooding the carb !

 And reset the nozzle height on the bridge.

As the carbs were off time to make some gaskets. These seal the carb to the spacer and to the cylinder head so you don;t get any vacuum leak.

Gasket sheets pennies for a large sheet.

If the part is already greasy, no problem. If not mark up the part with paint or a marker pen.

 Rub a piece of gasket sheet on part hard and the shape will transfer.

Then cut out and jobs done.
A fraction of the cost of buying and way more satisfying !

Next . . . . . . a package from Pertronix and a new ignition system.
