Rich, you mentioned steel gaskets with intergrated o rings. I'm using the AlfaHolics set up, shown in the picture I've attached, that has a rubber o washer already built in. Is this what you mean?
Also, I haven't taken the parts off yet. But I'm getting as much ready as I can and would like a recommendation regarding the wavy washers. Is there a preference in manufacturer, or where I should get them. A better, or best choice? Or is Lowes or Ace good enough? I know it's probably a stupid question, sorry.
I've also run across some threads that have various solutions for gasket seal. There's the large gasket between the head and manifold which was included with the order from AH, and the ones between the manifold and carb mounts, which are the paper ones. It seems the paper has the most assorted ways suggested for sealing, all the way from typical store bought specifics, to grease.
This is where I'd normally say that I'd appreciate the help and ask if there are any 'other' choices I haven't thought of. But the obvious truth is, I could use some direction on the sealants, especially on the paper.
And of course, no I don't want any leaks in the intake stream. Other than the one I possibly, currently, have. Is there any way of determining if any damage has been done for the loose carb mounts? The car runs fine, to me, but obviously it could be, or should be better.
Thanks so much, in advance for the help.
