Hey Rodney

The advise you have already been given regarding paper gasket is good advise. I always use "hylomar" sealant on both sides of the paper gasket...hylomar is available through your local spares company and I believe was used by rolls royce on their engines.

The gasket material I use is "permanite" or "sealrite" and is available in various thicknesses. Prob available from your same supplier.

If you have trouble loating it another source could be your local engine reconditioner.

Good luck......Chris

I have a couple of Carter carbs and some spare floats etc. I replaced my carter with a tillotson JR4a as well. The Carter were renowned for being very hard to tune in and quite heavy on gas usage compared to the Aftermarket tillotson. The other problem was breakage of the choke tube casting and most of the carter bodies I have, are broken. If you are interested I can dig out a good float and send it to you, just let me know.
