    Head storage.

    wipe motor oil on the steel parts then put in a garbage bag.
  4. What size are the chokes? 34-35mm would be great for street. How many progression holes? This works for 2.8l, you may need more fuel at wot. 65F9 idle jets Set fuel level ~28mm For mains a 165 jet with 160 air may get you going. E-tube (other than F2) will not make a big difference.

    Car wont run triple webers

    There is a lot to setting up triple webers. In a nutshell: 1. Engine is in good order (valves, ignition, timing, plugs, wires, manifold sealing, etc). 2. Linkage is non-binding and has exactly the same start, stop, and throw distances on all 3 carbs. 3. The carbs are in good order. 4. The jets, chokes, fuel levels, series number, etc are the same on all carbs AND you are in the ball park for jet and choke sizes for your engine/application 5. You have the tools and knowledge to tune triple webers: http://240260280.com/Tech/Carbs/Weber/DCOE Theory Operation and Tuning.html Get one of these for sure: or

    More research: There is a #3 form a gasket: US Part Number: 80017 Canada Part Number: 80017 Permatex® Aviation Form-A-Gasket® No. 3 Sealant Liquid (The good old molasses) Two more non-hardening: Permatex® Super “300” Form-A-Gasket® Sealant Permatex® PermaShield™ Fuel Resistant Gasket Dressing & Flange Sealant (similar to Hylomar)

    I think most sealants will work fine. I always ensured the mating surfaces were clean and used the brown aviation sealant with no problems. I would not use any sealant on an engine where a solid blob can be hidden then come loose and clog a passage. Permatex make two nice gasket making sealants: Permatex® Form-A-Gasket® No. 1 Sealant (hard setting) Permatex® Form-A-Gasket® No. 2 Sealant (non-setting)<<< use this one if the aviation sealant molasses is not enough. The transmission plugs and switches are difficult to remove. The tapered threads do not seem to work loose and hold nearly too well. Some propane helps with that. To minimize this in the future. I use antiseize when reattaching with no probems. If I were racing, a blue thread locker and paint marker to identify rotation would be the way to go if safety wires were not available.
