Hi Everyone
Does anyone know the porpose of the rubber flap between the carbs and intakes and is it necessary and what would it hurt if removed?
Thanks Tech1

Other than possible temp and fuel leak control,I haven't a clue.It was engineered for a reason,I guess. :?:
Hope your not having too much carb trouble like me :shock:

Thanks
Oh yea. I am on the hunt for vacume leaks and that darn thing is really a pain to see around. Replaced the T belts and installed a new 4 degree reluctor wheel yesterday along with a Tstat. Man is that thing buried! Oh and a bolt broke in the housing, Got it out and used SS bolt and antisieze to replace it Now waiting on Orings so as to not have a leak and pull the housing out again. I really like fuel injection!

Pull on every hose with a sharp 90* in them.That's where I found all of mine.
1 under the rubber mat.2 on each manifold(one on each side and one on each top).2 on the right side just above the manifold between the frame and faring.4 on the carb.
If the hose stretches thin,cut that part out or replace it.
Also look at the carb coupler rubber.Mine was so hardened it wouldn't seal at the manifold.It was real loose.

Now on to the plugged up idle ports.Another 8 hours in store for me.
