unidentified gasket

Postby lowmanj » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:48 pm



I finished the rebuid on '81 carbs using Randaak kit. I followed the book carefully, and cross referenced with the shop manual and tutorials I found here on site.

Nowhere in the process did I encounter the round rubber gasket, with 4 holes in it. There is one in the kit bit I've no clue where it belongs. Oops??

Carbs are still on the bench and dry, so if I missed something I can back track.
Thanks
Jesse

As mentioned, it doesn't go in the carbs, but fits on the fuel petcock.. You haven't done anything wrong.. :lol:

If the petcock isn't leaking it's not essential to do the gasket on it, but if you have it apart and you have a new gasket anyway...why not? :)

If I recall, the petcock is actually riveted together, and the rivets have to be (carefully) drilled out to get it apart, after which you can reassemble it using nuts and bolts to assist in future overhauls.

Thank you gentlemen,
Great help as always. Soon as I replace throttle, clutch and choke cables I'll get to see how she runs with gasoline actually flowing ton all cylinders! Timing belt is next.
