I know that this is really a cheap mans problem, but I don't get my new carb until at least next month. My carb has a vacuum leak between the base plate and the body of the carb. Is there any way to seal it if a new gasket doesn't work. I don't want to spend too much more on this old beater carb and a little riggin to get me by until Feb. is fine.
separate the baseplate and main body.
Where ever the gasket is torn or questionable
apply some "Seal ALL", wait about 20 min and
reinstall ... The stuff fixes any thing and is not affected by gas.
Look for it in auto parts stores.
